Chinatown ultimately became Roman Polanski’s last film to be shot in the United States and remains a classic depiction of Los Angeles, which is no short order. The neo-noir mystery follows fedora-wearing private investigator Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) as he picks up a seemingly routine infidelity case involving Mr. and Mrs. Mulwray. When Mr. Mulwray is snuffed out, the plot thickens as Jake noses around Depression-era Southern California.
