Chinatown - review by 123movies

Chinatown 123movies lasts only 130 minutes, but during this time you have time to fully experience all the experiences of the characters and learn their rich inner world.

To watch a movie in one breath without the desire to take a minute break, for me this is an indicator of quality, now for me the genre Best Crime, Best Dramas, Best Mystery, Best Thriller, Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller is associated with this film.

Among the numerous film works of 1974, it is impossible to pass by this popular film, which brought together famous actors of our time on the screen.

I have been interested in the work of Roman Polański for a long time, but this film was a revelation for me, the director perfectly put together all the parts of the plot puzzle into a chic film.

Few actors would have been able to realize such a brilliant idea of the director, but Diane Ladd, Faye Dunaway, Jack Nicholson, James Hong, John Hillerman, John Huston, Perry Lopez, Richard Bakalyan, Roman Polański, Roy Jenson proved that they are real professionals in their field.
