in one of the best films of the 1970s, Jack Ni­chol­son’s de­tec­tive in­ves­ti­gates the adul­tery of the hus­band of a frag­ile woman (Faye Du­n­away) and finds him­self on an­other case en­tirely – the theft of wa­ter from drought-prone Cal­i­for­nia. End­lessly copied, Ro­man Polan­ski’s tightly writ­ten, per­fectly played who­dunit is a clas­sic from open­ing scene to shock­ing con­clu­sion.
