Chinatown * * *

"LA is a small city. People talk. I don't want to become a local joke."

Jack Nicolson is a private detective in 1930's Los Angeles, when the city only had 1,000,000 people, and was facing the threat of drought in the middle of the summer. The movie just makes so much more sense when you've actually lived there. The screenplay is incredible (won oscar for that), and the wording many times left me speechless. People just don't make movies like that anymore.

Who? Themos
Where? Home Theater
