“Chinatown () was a watershed moment in a colorful era of American filmmaking. Wasson looks past the myth to tell the true story of its making.” ―USA Today, “Winter Reading Guide: This Season’s Must-Read Books” “If you love Chinatown, then you’ll love The Big Goodbye―and it’s good reading for any American cinema buff.”/5().

Chinatown is easily one of the greatest screenplays ever written. It choses to set up the story in a simple and predictable manner but at around page 20 the whole story goes in a turn. Private detective J.J Gittes explores a situation in L.A during the time of the flood and discovers a huge corruption conspiracy going along that time/5.

We love this book. My eight year old son, who is Chinese American, loved learning about Chinatown, Little Italy, disputes between cultures and neighborhoods and how they can be solved, and much much more while looking at the lovely illustrations.

This is a treasure of a book/5(5). In a scrupulously researched and reported book with a stellar cast of players, not to mention some astonishing sources, Wasson sees Roman Polanski as the genius who elevated “Chinatown” from.

Chinatown, directed by Roman Polanski, written by Robert Towne, produced by Robert Evans, and starring Jack Nicholson, is a lush, mysterious, thrilling work whose influence still resonates in movies as different as L.A. Confidential and The Big Lebowski/5(5). Interior Chinatown is a deeply emotional book about race, identity, pop culture, and what roles we are forced I thought the book was exhausting when I first began to read it, till I reached about forty pages and started enjoying it thoroughly.

This is somewhat my relationship with the other two books written by Yu as well.4/5. Is "Chinatown" based on a book.

Chinatown is based on an original screenplay written by Robert Towne. A sequel called The Two Jakes () was also based on a screenplay by Robert Towne and stars Jack Nicholson (who also directed it). Jake arranges a final showdown with Cross at the Mulwray mansion, showing him evidence of both the land grab and the murder.

Mulvihill, who accompanied Cross, holds a gun to Jake’s head and forces him to lead them to Chinatown and the girl.

Cross finds the pair on the verge of escaping and pleads with Evelyn to hand Katherine over to him. [Peter Benchley’s book, on which Steven Spielberg ’s classic thriller was based, was released the same year as Chinatown.

“Interior Chinatown” follows a Generic Asian Man in his efforts to become more than a bit : Carolyn Kellogg. Chinatown sculptures would take social-political stands. At Portsmouth Square, the torch-wielding Goddess of Democracy looks oddly familiar.

Dedicated inthe bronze replica is based on the statue created during the Tiananmen Square student protest in China. At St. Mary’s Square, the Comfort Women memorial shows three young women. "The wondrous thing about Sam Wasson’s new book is that it feels both necessary and inevitable - as if Chinatown couldn’t (or shouldn’t) exist without it.

Reading The Big Goodbye, something strange happens: it acquires the historical, dizzying, incestuous gravitas of the film : Flatiron Books. Wasson concludes his book with several long chapters about the less-than-stellar fates of “Chinatown”’s principals.

It’s a bummer of an ending and a disappointing way to celebrate an American Author: Mark Horowitz. This book provides an interesting hxstorical overview into Chinatown. Two fascinating insights that Kwong provides is 1) into the relations between Chinatown residents and American labor unions and 2) the emergence of left coalition and organizing in the s and how they [the Chinatown left] responded in the s with interesting hxstorical resonances to /5.

Sam Wasson’s fascinating and page-turning description of the talent and ideas behind “Chinatown” is more than a mere biography of a landmark movie; it aims to flesh out the wild and woolly. A private detective hired to expose an adulterer finds himself caught up in a web of deceit, corruption, and murder.

In Los Angeles, private investigator Jake 'J.J.' Gittes specializes in cheating-spouse cases. His current target is Hollis Mulwray, high-profile chief engineer for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, whose wife.
