Chinatown ★★★★★

I love the opportunity to revisit some of my favorite films. This one gets better with every viewing.

It is an amalgamation of several forms of greatness. It has the wit of classic Hollywood at the pace of European New Wave. It is a noir tale, but the vast majority of it takes place in broad day light. Our hero hides deception in his honesty and our femme is both damsel and fatale simultaneously....

In Chinatown, you never know the whole story until you know. The WHOLE story...

In short: this is the perfect film... One of very few...
