CHINATOWN, the quintessential neo-noir, is a reworked Hammett/Chandler style mystery set in 1937 Los Angeles. Jack Nicholson plays a private eye who’s in over his head in a complex case that stays a few twists ahead of him. Robert Towne’s screenplay is sharp and Roman Polanski’s dark direction is even sharper. Femme fatale Dunaway and sinister developer Huston are perfect.
