A private detective hired to expose an adulterer finds himself caught up in a web of deceit, corruption, and murder.

Jack Nicholson gives his greatest performance as 1930s private eye J.J. Gittes, maneuvering through a nightmarish L.A. netherworld of cheating husbands, stolen water rights, incest and murder, as he desperately tries to save beautiful Faye Dunaway from her raptorlike father (John Huston). Writer Robert Towne’s magnificent, labyrinthine portrait of Los Angeles has been widely hailed as the best script of its era.

US, 1974, 130min., Dir. Roman Polanski
