Roman Polanski / US, 1974 / 131 min.
Private eye J.J. Gittes (Jack Nicholson) uncovers a scandal in 1930s Los Angeles that implicates the city’s political elite; Polanski's homage to the film noir leads the viewer astray through a nightmarish labyrinth.
Eye’s collection includes a wealth of classics. We screen them regularly, in various programmes. Eye now brings film history even closer with its new series Eye Classics: three classics a week, chosen by Eye's programmers. On the big screen, screened in 35mm whenever possible.
