Sequel to the classic "Chinatown", in which private eye Jake Gittes becomes an unwitting accessory to a murder in 1940's California. Not as good as the original, but still worthwhile!
Jake Berman has hired private investigator J.J. 'Jake' Gittes to catch his wife in the act of committing adultery. During the sting, Berman shoots the man who turns out to be his partner in a real estate company. Gittes, now under intense scrutiny for his unwitting part in the crime, must figure out if it was justifiable homicide or murder and how it connects with California's booming oil industry as well as his own past after he stumbles upon a wire recording during the investigation that mentions 'Katherine Mulwray,' the daughter of Faye Dunaway's ill-fated character from Chinatown.

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.
In this sequel to Chinatown, detective Jake Gittes investigates a murder with ties to the oil industry, and discovers a clue about the little girl lost eleven years earlier.
