“Remains as caustic, daring and horrifically shocking as it did in 1974. See this film as many times as you can. Please.” – Adam Lee Davies, Little White Lies

PI Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) is hired by Evelyn Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) to trail her husband who she suspects is having an affair. What initially looks like a simple case of adultery soon descends into a maze of corruption and noir of absolute pitch black. Produced by Robert Evans, with a screenplay by Robert Towne, Chinatown is not only Polanski’s masterpiece but one of the finest films to emerge from the 70s New Hollywood.
