"You're dumber than you think I think you are."

This Roman Polanski effort is a true classic movie; Chinatown is an excellent, stylish, fascinating and gripping thriller that is based on the novel by Robert Towne.

Cleverly, the film has been made in a very 1940's style - the acting, the score, even the credits. Suffice to say, the plot is a lot more complex than anyt... read more

Of course, I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, it is probably Roman Polanski's most famous movie and, I think it completely deserves its stellar reputation. Indeed, it is basically a great mix of a traditional neo-noir feature with Polanski's dark and twisted directing style. I have to admit that the plot ... read more

" Re-Watched: 3/21/2018 Rating: 8.0 Format: Blu Ray With great performances by Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, the beautiful setting of early 20th century Los Angeles, and an intreging story that leaves you guessing until the end, I can see way many people think Chinatown is a masterpiece. Although at least for me the ending does leave me wanting more. "

"21.1. Orion (DCP) Aika hyvä dekkari oli tämä. Juoni on kerrassaan hieno, eikä ulkoasuakaan voi moittia. Nicholson on vissiin jokaisessa kohtauksessa ja ensimmäistä kertaa tuli oikein ihasteltua ukon näyttelijäntaitoja. Intoni aloittaa muutaman vuoden lykkäämäni noir-projekti nousi jos ei kohisten niin ainakin suhisten. Lisähuomiona, kiitos Finnkinon volyymipolitiikan ja nykyelokuvien ääniraitojen, olin jo ehtinyt unohtaa, kuinka salissa kuuluva rapina voikaan vituttaa. "
