A superb, Oscar-nominated Faye Dunaway gives the performance of her career as enigmatic femme fatale Evelyn Mulwray in Roman Polanski’s bleak, fatalistic thriller. In the Los Angeles of 1937, cynical private eye J J Gittes (Jack Nicholson) is hired to investigate the indiscretions of a philandering husband. As the investigation deepens and Gittes is warned to stop prying, he uncovers a city built on murder and corruption, where power lies in the hands of the few and any crime or misdemeanour can be made to disappear. A stunning homage to the detective genre that has become a classic in its own right.
