CrawfordMovies’s review published on Letterboxd:
In my opinion a good screenplay conveys a lot of information in a compelling way that keeps the reader / audiences engaged. With that in mind this is one of the finest written films I’ve ever seen. Roman Polanski (who would soon after become a rapist and fugitive) along with his fantastic cast bring Robert Towne’s world to life with immense class and confidence. I’ll be thinking about this movie for a while.
