Chinatown: Centennial Collection
Even the City of Angels has a dark side, as this private eye Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) is about to find out. Hired by a mysterious woman to investigate Hollis Mulwray, the chief engineer of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Gittes' sleuthing brings him into contact with Mulwray's wife (Raye Dunaway), a stunning socialite with secrets of her own. As a determined Gittes delves deeper, the seemingly routine case quickly deteriorates into a tangle of deceit, corruption and treachery. Director Roman Polaski's Chinatown has evolved from an atmospheric mystery into a masterful, landmark film, with Robert Towne's Academy Award winning script unforgettably and brilliantly capturing a lost era in the crime-drama genre.
