Jack Nicholson gets nosey in CHINATOWN

One of my personal favorite movies from the 1970s, Roman Polanski’s crime-mystery neo-noir Chinatown is hitting Blu Ray April 3rd!

Set in the late 1930s, Jack Nicholson plays J.J. “Jake” Gittes, a Los Angeles gumshoe who is hired to keep tabs on Hollis Mulwray an engineer for the cities’ Department of Water and Power. After Mulwray is later found murdered, Gittes decides to continue investigating and find out who was responsible for the killing. As he delves further into the dealings of Mulwray, he finds himself in the center of a storm of corruption and mysterious family secrets. Filled with great performances, superb direction and a magnificent screenplay by Robert Towne, Chinatown is a classic movie that fans definitely should see and add to their collection. Co-starring Faye Dunaway, Burt Young, James Hong and John Huston.

Special Features on the new Blu Ray include: Commentary with Robert Towne and David Fincher; Three-part Water and Power documentary with Robert Towne; Chinatown: An Appreciation retrospective with filmmakers Steven Soderbergh, James Newton Howard, Kimberly Peirce, and Roger Deakins; Chinatown: The Beginning and the End; Chinatown: Filming; Chinatown: The Legacy; Theatrical Trailer; and a Collectible Booklet.
