Chinatown

Roman Polanski's classic LA noir mystery following private eye JJ Gittes (Jack Nicholson) and his investigation into local government corruption at the behest of troubled beauty Evelyn Mulwray (Faye Dunaway). "You may think you know what you're dealing with, but believe me, you don't" warns Mulwray's father Noah Cross (John Huston). A highlight of the American New Wave, Chinatown is now considered one of the best movies ever made. It was nominated for 11 Oscars and was Polanski's last American film.

Possibly perfect.

For me, this is a perfect film. Beautifully photographed (sensational use of the wide screen format), amazing performances - a story, directed with great tact, that's complex, mysterious and wholly engaging. Polanski's film rewards repeat viewings. So yeah, I like it.
