CHINATOWN (1974)




Director:
Roman Polanski

Writer:
Robert Towne

Starring:
Jack Nicholson
Faye Dunaway
John Hudson and others

Chinatown is Polanski’s best by a mile. Ok agreed that I have not seen Rosemary’s Baby till now but Jack Nicholson’s performance is just sensational. But the main hero of the movie is the astoundingly deft script by Robert Towne. The movie in Polanski’s able hand never lets go of its pace for even a minute. The end left me wanting five extra minutes just to give it a more complete feel. Don’t miss this one.
