A landmark movie in the film-noir tradition, CHINATOWN stands as a true screen classic. Jack Nicholson is private eye Jake Gittes, living off the murky moral climate of sunbaked, pre-war Southern California. Hired by a beautiful socialite (Faye Dunaway) to investigate her husband's extra-marital affair, Gittes is swept into a maelstrom of double dealings and deadly deceits, uncovering a web of personal and political scandals that come crashing together. Winner of the Best Original Screenplay Award at the **Academy Awards.** Winner of the Best Director, Best Actor and Best Screenplay Awards at the **Golden Globes** and the **BAFTA Awards.** *"It's a 1940s private-eye movie that doesn't depend on nostalgia or camp for is e...ffect, but works because of the enduring strength of the genre itself" - Roger Ebert, **RogerEbert.com***
