  • Critic Reviews of "Chinatown"

    Chicago Tribune
    January 18, 2013

    As much as I admire the work of both Polanski and Nicholson, I found Chinatown tedious from beginning to just before the end.

    March 27, 2009

    Roman Polanski's American made film, first since Rosemary's Baby shows him again in total command of talent and physical filmmaking elements.

    Chicago Reader
    March 27, 2009

    Polanski's film suggests that the rules of the game are written in some strange, untranslatable language, and that everyone's an alien and, ultimately, a victim.

    Time Out
    February 09, 2006

    The hard-boiled private eye coolly strolls a few steps ahead of the audience.

    Village Voice
    August 05, 2003

    In 1974 a director, a screenwriter, and a producer (Robert Evans, who for once deserves a few of the plaudits he's apportioned himself) could decide to beat a genre senseless and then dump it in the wilds of Greek tragedy.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    A new private-eye melodrama that celebrates not only a time and a place (Los Angeles) but also a kind of criminality that to us jaded souls today appears to be nothing worse than an eccentric form of legitimate private enterprise.

    Daily Telegraph (UK)
    May 18, 2016

    As private investigator Jake Gittes, hired to dig up some dirt on Hollis Mulwray, chief engineer of Los Angeles's water department, Nicholson saunters round the city delivering one-liners with offhand brilliance.

    Movie Mezzanine
    February 04, 2014

    Chinatown is deliciously, intolerably cruel as it toys with us.

    Observer (UK)
    January 05, 2013

    This film is flawless.

    London Evening Standard
    January 04, 2013

    Polanski's telling of his tale of corruption in LA is masterly - thrilling, humorous and disturbing at the same time - and brilliantly played by John Huston and Faye Dunaway as well as Nicholson.

    Little White Lies
    January 03, 2013

    See this film as many times as you can. Please.
