Forgetting Chinatown will be exceedingly difficult with this stunning new Blu-ray transfer from Paramount, brimming over with a tidal pool of extras, even if they aren't necessarily new to this edition.

The movie has a great look, the story is both surprising in its plot structures and full of intriguing twists, and (probably thanks to Polanski) the movie doesn't pull any punches.

...suspenseful, intriguing, well acted, and fast paced, despite Polanski taking things at a relaxed tempo. (Blu-ray edition)
