General information

Rated 3 out of 5

“The Two Jakes” is a 1990 neo-noir film and a sequel to the classic 1974 film “Chinatown”. Directed by Jack Nicholson and written by Robert Towne, the movie stars Nicholson as private investigator Jake Gittes, who is once again embroiled in a complex web of corruption and deceit in 1940s Los Angeles.

The movie received mixed reviews upon its release, with some critics praising Nicholson’s performance and the film’s noir atmosphere, while others found it to be overly convoluted and lacking the magic of the original “Chinatown”.

Despite its flaws, “The Two Jakes” is an intriguing and entertaining film that will appeal to fans of the genre. The story is complex and multi-layered, with plenty of twists and turns to keep audiences guessing. Nicholson gives a solid performance as the world-weary Gittes, and the supporting cast is strong as well, with performances from Harvey Keitel, Meg Tilly, and Madeleine Stowe.

One of the film’s strengths is its recreation of the 1940s era, with impressive attention to detail in the sets, costumes, and overall atmosphere. The movie also boasts a memorable score by Van Dyke Parks, which adds to the mood and feel of the film.

Overall, “The Two Jakes” may not be as iconic or groundbreaking as its predecessor, but it is still an enjoyable and well-crafted film that is worth a watch for fans of the noir genre and those who appreciate Nicholson’s work as an actor and director.
