CHINATOWN
1974, Paramount, 131 min, Dir: Roman Polanski

Jack Nicholson gives one of his greatest performances as 1930s private eye J.J. Gittes, maneuvering through a nightmarish L.A. netherworld of cheating husbands, stolen water rights, incest and murder, as he desperately tries to save beautiful Faye Dunaway from her raptor-like father (John Huston). Writer Robert Towne’s magnificent, labyrinthine portrait of Los Angeles has been widely hailed as the best script of its era.
