Film Series: Chinatown

1974. USA. Dir: Roman Polanski. With Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway. 130 min.

LA, 1937: A private detective who specializes in catching adulterers becomes entangled in a much larger plot involving murder, corruption, and water… Perhaps Polanski’s most iconic film, Chinatown is touted by many as the “perfect script” but succeeds just as well in atmosphere, as homage to the Hollywood noir and foreboding love letter to the City of Angels.
