Misleading The Misleaders

Snoogans, FilmCrave
29 April 2014
  • Excerpt: 'Chinatown' is a constricting noir mystery that unravels it's knotted narrative in a wildly unpredictable manner. Each new twist is just a lie to cover up another lie, and so on. That is, until the shocking truth is revealed. Turns out to be less complicated than it initially started.

  • Excerpt: I have little to say about this movie, it has all been said by others. But I recommend this movie if you have seen it before on DVD or Tape. I picked up the Dutch version and it has been robbed of all extra's.

  • Summary: Director Roman Polanski brings back the spirit of the classic noir - invoking gritty city scenery, some nasty character acting, and a plot full of deception and doublecrossing. The end result is a wellmade, sneering and nostalgic journey through dark human emotions.

  • Summary: An excellent film noir, powered by Jack Nicholson's performance, make this film still viewable and relevant today. What begins as a routine investigation for a private investigation soon snowballs into a web of lies, murder, deceit, and mystery.
