Plot

Hollis Mulwray is a chief engineer of the water department. Ida Sessions, pretending to be his wife Evelyn, asks P.I. JJ Jake Gittes to investigate his adulterous ways. Jake takes photos of Hollis with a young lady. Hollis then turns up murdered, which Jake decides to investigate. Jake finds more than he was looking for. He discovers a plot to buy cheap, unwatered land for low prices, water the land, and sell it for millions of dollars. The plot is masterminded by one Noah Cross, who is Evelyn's father and Hollis' one-time business partner. His investigation leads him to an affair with Evelyn and a discussion with Noah Cross, both of whom seem curiously interested in the girl Hollis was seen with.
 

Comments

Truly, one of the most entertaining films ever! Made as an old Film-noir. Everybody said that this film was great but the story was all to complicated but I thought it was very EASY to understand. It's about a detective that is so masterful played by Jack Nicholson that comes in to a world of crime and murders. The famous scene were Roman Polanski does a very terrifying thing with a knife is superb. It's also very funny to see John Huston in such a great role(one of the best directors ever) You follows the detective and this gangster/film-noir is truly one of the most entertaining films ever. Technical it's perfect, the lightening, cinematography and the settings. The end is one of the darkest ever and I do not use to like dark endings but this time I had another feeling. It was frightening but also masterful and the film is still today very powerful. The 1970's was a great film period in America and this is one of the better films I have seen during that period. One of the most entertaining films ever!. 10/10
