My Chinatown review

My review of the Chinatown: Special Collector’s Edition is in todays Austin Chronicle.

For many, Chinatown, directed by Roman Polanski from Robert Towne’s Oscar-winning screenplay, epitomizes the peak of Seventies Hollywood filmmaking and perhaps the finest neo-noir ever made. Yet according to the four documentary featurettes on this new special edition, the movie almost didn’t get made.
