Editorial Reviews

Chinatown - Landmark movie in the film noir tradition, Roman Polanski's Chinatown stands as a true screen classic. Jack Nicholson is private eye Jake Gittes, living off the murky moral climate of sunbaked, pre-war Southern California. Hired by a beautiful socialite (Faye Dunaway) to investigate her husband's extra-marital affair, Gittes is swept into a maelstrom of double dealings and deadly deceits, uncovering a web of personal and political scandals that come crashing together for one, unforgettable night in...Chinatown. Co-starring film legend John Huston and featuring an Academy Award®-winning script by Robert Towne, Chinatown captures a lost era in a masterfully woven movie that remains a timeless gem. The Two Jakes - Jack Nicholson returns as private eye Jake Gittes in this atmospheric Chinatown follow-up that's hit upon "the elusive sequel formula for somehow enhancing a great original" (Mike Clark, USA Today).Much has changed since we last saw Jake. The war has come and gone; 1948 Los Angeles teems with optimism and fast bucks. But there's one thing Jake knows hasn't changed: "Nine times out of ten, if you follow the money you will get to the truth." And that's the trail he follows when a routine case of marital hanky panky explodes into a murder that's tied to a grab for oil--and to Jake's own past.

This is the best presentation of Chinatown I've seen to date, and am very pleased with the purchase. The quality of the films (and backstory features) are very pleasing and, in the case of the latter, insightful. I will place the disclaimer that I am a big Polanski fan, as well as the genre in question, so that does create a natural bias. It's the ideal product for folks wanting the whole picture. If you follow the money, it will lead you to this superior combo... - k

If you are a Jack Nicholson fan you will love this package, while Chinatown is the premier of the package, The Two Jakes is very good and makes you feel like you are living a part of the Old LA that makes up this movie

Even though both films have already been released on DVD. Having both of them packaged together. With the new interviews makes it worthwhile.

Packaging both movies together brings the entire story together. Without being together you have to look around and try to find the 2nd movie (The Two jakes)to complete the story.
