Great movie25 May 2015

A great thriller with a multi layered plot displaying the shifty world of power and corruption, combined with elements of love, loyalty and betrayal. Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway are superb. Terrific viewing.

Perhaps the greatest Film Noir ever made in colour! Certainly one of the greatest films made by Polanski. I have watched it many times and if I'm feeling low and in need of something to transport me out of my little life then I just watch it again. Nicholson and Huston are superb almost as good... more

Great film02 August 2012

One of the best films I have seen in quite some time.
It has been digitally remastered for color and sound so it really is nice to watch even though it is an older movie.
The mystery is good and keeps you guessing and curious all the way through. The acting is superb.

Film noir is like many card games out there--easy to learn, difficult to master. It's not at all tough to understand the elements, such as the low-key lighting, the morally grey characters and so on but to truly make a great noir film requires so much more than assembling the cookie-cutter pieces... more
