Chinatown ★★★★½

I am speechless. what a clever series of misdirection, miscommunication, misunderstanding, and mistake. when the camera pans out after he uttered "forget it, Jake. it's Chinatown” I shed tears without knowing the real reason why and I love shedding tears without knowing why; it only means something inside me has snapped (hello it's me a sensitive person). a brilliant, beautifully despairing film. sometimes you gave it your all (just intrigue and curiosity at first til you become dangerously invested) and it's still not enough; all that's left is to walk away and let go. when so many things come to play you have to get out of the game.
