Zach on Film: Chinatown (1974)

by

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.
