The Two Jakes

Drama 2h 17m 1990

A belated sequel to “Chinatown” (1974), with Jack Nicholson reprising his role as the laconic P.I. whose petty burrowing upturns homicide and corruption.

Synopsis: The war has come and gone and 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.

“It’s an exquisite short story about a mood, and a time, and a couple of guys who are blind-sided by love.” ~ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
