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". 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.
