Directed by Roman Polanski. Jack Nicholson gives his greatest performance as 1930's private eye J.J. Gittes, maneuvering through a nightmarish L.A. netherworld of cheating husbands, stolen water rights, incest and murder, as he desperately tries to save beautiful Faye Dunaway from her raptor-like father John Huston. Writer Robert Towne's magnificent, labyrinthine portrait of Los Angeles has been widely hailed as the best script of its era. Film critic Kevin Thomas will introduce the screening.
