I didn’t realize how dark it was.

It’s been a few years since I’d seen it and I’d forgotten how beautiful this movie is.

Very accomplished film is one of Polanski's best and as good as any film Dunaway or Nicholson ever appeared in.

I'm glad you little homosexual boys still appreciate my legacy.

Excellent choice for TCM to include in their neo-noir night. The film plays against the audience’s noir expectations, making us suspicious of Faye Dunaway’s femme fatale character from the start. She then ends up being the most tragic and sympathetic character in the whole picture. What a bleak, but brilliant ending.

Love it....saw it when it was released....one of Faye Dunaway's best roles.......it's a masterpiece.

even if it was directed by a serial pedophile.

Forget it, Jake -- it's La-La Land.

For anyone interested in LA history, watch Chinatown this Sunday @ 8et and follow along on Twitter for commentary.

Weird how you can divide Polanski's career with this film. His post-Chinatown (post-rape?) films aren't very interesting or good.

He has a new one coming out. Buncha towelheads yelling at each other. Pass.
