Chinatown 1974 detective story

Chinatown (1974, United States)

Private investigator Jake Gites takes a case that seems to be on a verge of boring - wealthy woman suspects her husband Hollis Mulwray of infidelity and wants detective to follow him. Gites follows her orders and begins to shadow Mulwray, but when Hollis is found dead it turns out that the woman in Gites’ office wasn’t even Milwray’s wife. Now Jake has to find who really hired him and why. To make thing even more complicated he begins to suspect that Mulwray was involved in some shady business, so Gites have to deal with rather dangerous people on his way.

Classic crime / detective story written and directed by Roman Polanski, great performances from Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway set this film among the iconic crime dramas.
