With Jack Nicholson starring and direction by Roman Polanski, that is reason enough to make me go!
Having recently topped the Guardian/Observer critics' poll as the best film of all time, Roman Polanski's (THE PIANIST) seminal 1974 neo-noir has never had a better reason to return to the big screen.

Part mystery, part noir, CHINATOWN remains Polanski's most accomplished and accessible film, inspired as it is by the historical disputes over land and water rights that raged in southern California during the 1910s and 1920s. At the heart of this amoral tale of sex and scandal is Jake Gittes, a private investigator who is hired to spy on the chief engineer of the LA Department of Water and Power.
