Chinatown

Director: Roman Polanski.
Starring: Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston. USA 1974. 125 mins.


Los Angeles, 1937. Private detective Jake Gittes discovers murder, corruption and enigma when he is lured into an apparently simple investigation of adultery and estrangement. Rooted in a palpable evocation of time and place and in a mordant sense of the dark underside of American history, CHINATOWN became the classic detective film of the 1970s.
