This week, Zach goes down the rabbit hole and explores all the intricacies of Roman Polanski’s Chinatown.

Chinatown is a 1974 American neo-noir film, directed by Roman Polanski from a screenplay by Robert Towne, and starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, and John Huston. The film was inspired by the California Water Wars, a series of disputes over southern California water at the beginning of the 20th century by which Los Angeles interests secured water rights in the Owens Valley. The Robert Evans production, a Paramount Pictures release, was the director’s last film in the United States, and features many elements of film noir, particularly a multi-layered story that is part mystery and part psychological drama.

    I’m just going to reiterate something I stated earlier. Zach, if you are at all interested in these noir detective movies, you really need to watch The Long Goodbye. It’s my second favourite detective movie of all time.
