Chinatown ★★★★★

An example of the perfect movie. A neo-noir that succeeds because it understands all the elements of what make noirs so great. Faye Dunaway delivers an outstanding performance and Jack Nicholson proves why  he's one of the best performers ever. 

Perfectly written and plotted and beautifully shot. What a triumph. 
**Watched on the big screen at the Aero theater in Santa Monica.
