Chinatown ★★★★½

What a fantastic crime thriller from Roman Polanski. Chinatown is superbly acted, very stylish and contains a mysterious story that will keep you enthralled until the end. There are several shocking and disturbing moments, which were delivered quite effectively throughout the film. The score is done pretty well and helps propelling the intensity in a lot of scenes. I was constantly entertained and intrigued by Jack Nicholson's character as he's a sarcastic, witty and persistent detective. Faye Dunaway and John Huston are other highlights and delivered excellent performances as well. I was really moved by its haunting ending and shocked by the main twist presented earlier in the film. Chinatown is certainly one of the best american noirs ever made and I highly recommend it.
