Chinatown (1974): Review by Pick-Up Flix

Chinatown (1974)

Michael Clawson has posted to his blog, Pick-Up Flix, a review of Roman Polanski’s Chinatown (1974) with an original take on Chinatown as metaphor: the title refers to a place where law and order (i.e. death) are circumvented by the tragedy and corruption of life. Roman Polanski wasn’t creating just a mystery; he was bowing to the greatness in which mystery thrived — film noir”.

  1. The darkcitydame4e said, I really enjoyed reading writer/photographer Micheal Clawson’s review of director Roman Polanski’s 1974 film “Chinatown.”
    Just the mere fact, that he (Clawson) pointed out that the film “Chinatown” adheres to what made the film noir (genre/style) great today and embody the “original spirit” of the Golden Age of Film noir, just gives me one more reason to believe that the film noir cycle didn’t end, but made the transition to or rather “gave birth” to this thing that is referred to as the “progeny” of film noir called neo noir.
    By the way, Tony D’Ambra, the poster that you featured of the film is very mysterious and unique.
