That is the summit of movie-making
on 17 January 2014
Chinatown is unforgettable, five stars, with actors like Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, the same high value as Vertigo of
Hitchcock... There're scenes which stay in memory for ever and give you the highest examples of human behaviour as it should be.
Bravo Polanski, probably his best. It couldn't be otherwise, with the association of names like Polanski, Nicholson, Faye Dunaway.
It can be noted that Faye Dunaway has probably been much inspired by the story, given her possible Chinese ascendancy.
Films like this one make movie making an equal of traditional classical litterature.
