Chinatown
Roman Polanski's Chinatown has evolved from a classic mystery to a landmark film. Screen legend Jack Nicholson breathes life into sharp-tongued private eye Jake Gittes. Gittes is hired by a stunning socialite (Faye Dunaway) to investigate her husband, who she suspects of cheating. But what Gittes thinks is a routine case of adultery quickly deteriorates into a tangle of deceit, corruption and treachery.

Even the City of Angels has a dark side, as this private eye is about to find out. He unravels one scandal after next, but the biggest mystery is what, and who, lies at the heart of it all. Robert Towne's Academy Award-winning script captures a lost era of crime-drama in this timeless gem of a film.

The Two Jakes
Jack Nicholson returns as private eye Jake Gittes in this atmospheric Chinatown follow-up that's hit upon "the elusive sequel formula for somehow enhancing a great original" (Mike Clark, USA Today).

Much has changed since we last saw Jake. The war has come and gone; 1948 Los Angeles teems with optimism and fast bucks. But there's one thing Jake knows hasn't changed: "Nine times out of ten, if you follow the money you will get to the truth." And that's the trail he follows when a routine case of marital hanky-panky explodes into a murder that's tied to a grab for oil - and to Jake's own past.
