Chinatown (1974) is a superb, private eye mystery and modern-day film noir thriller. Its original, Award-winning screenplay by Robert Towne is a throwback that pays homage to the best Hollywood film noirs from the pens of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler in the 30s and 40s. The film is a skillful blend of mystery, romance, suspense, and hard boiled detective/film noir genre elements - especially embodied in The Maltese Falcon (1941) (by director John Huston who acts in this film) and The Big Sleep (1946). The film marked director Roman Polanski's return to Hollywood five years after the gruesome 1969 Manson murders that took the life of his actress wife Sharon Tate. Polanski opted to use a bleak ending rather than the more hopeful finale in the original screenplay.

Chinatown was badass. It helps if you know a little bit about the history of California with Mullholand and others. It really was corrupt with people fighting and over the water and aquaduct. And the movie shows alot of it. Plus it has my man Jack in it.
