Forget it, Bit Players. It's Chinatown. The guys dig into Roman Polanski's 1974 film starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway on this week's podcast. They break down their feelings going into a film that carries such a critical weight - making it feel must-see - and palpable dread that comes with sitting through a 131-minute classic, and how those feelings played out and potentially changed as the film unfolded. They compare the film to other crime noir films of its ilk, trying to place it in the ranks of the film canon.
