Roman Polanski’s classic detective film has Jack Nicholson on peak form as PI Jake Gittes, negotiating his way through a ’40s noir landscape as he pokes his nose into the business of Faye Dunaway and her corrupt pa, John Huston. Superbly scripted by Robert Towne, this is one of the key films of the seventies.

It’s back on screen in the Everyman’s late night classics series.
