The story of a struggling private investigator getting a case that has more twists and turns than a mountain road is still one of the most crafted storylines ever concocted. Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston, John Hillerman all deliver superb performances. Robert Towne’s script, John A. Alonzo’s camerawork, and Polanski’s direction all make this a classic.
Director: Roman Polanski
USA 130 minutes Cert 15
We say: One of the greatest films of all time and one that critics argue looks better now than it did in 1974. Chinatown is a classic on all fronts: the acting, cinematography and atmosphere are all highly acclaimed and the script is held up by screenwriters the world over as one of the best ever constructed.
