    A real investigative mysterious movie, tremendously well played by Jack Nicholson 8 years ago

    Just finished watching it today, and enjoyed the hell out of it. It just became a new favorite of mine. Polanski crafts, aided by an excellent script by Robert Towne, a very well made thriller, a homage to all those Dashell Hammett and Raymond Chandler private eye novels. I honestly could rewatch this again at this very moment, and wouldn't hesitate. Nicholson and Dunaway are in top form here, with an excellent score by Jerry Goldsmith to underline everything. I can't think of a thing that's wrong with it, a perfect film. 8 years 1 month ago
