Synopsis

Following the recent Polanski Retrospective at the NFT, we present new prints of two classics from the master of cinematic menace.

1930s Los Angeles. Private eye Jake Gittes finds himself increasingly out of his depth when taking on what seems to be a simple divorce case.

The Oscar-winning script takes us into the morally and psychologically murky world of civic and personal corruption. Impeccably made, genuinely intelligent and complex.
