The Film Geeks San Diego present a Roman Polanski’s classic noir CHINATOWN, starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway.
A private detective, Jake Gittes, hired to investigate an adultery case, stumbles on the plot of a murder involving incest and the privatization of water through state and municipal corruption, land use and real estate. If he doesn’t drop the case at once he faces threats of legal action, but he pursues it anyway, slowly uncovering a vast conspiracy.
“It takes a Herculean effort to transform this type into a character and to replace the formula with a story, and Chinatown’s success in both of these regards is one of the reasons it is universally viewed as a classic.” – ReelViews
“A new private-eye melodrama that celebrates not only a time and a place (Los Angeles) but also a kind of criminality that to us jaded souls today appears to be nothing worse than an eccentric form of legitimate private enterprise.” – New York Times
Director: Roman Polanski
