Director Roman Polanski Top 5 Movies
I'm out of order! Chinatown is only #243 out of 300 movies, in terms of domestic box office (of the films featured in our Blockbusting book) but with Polanski in the news, and because I'm a big fan of his films, I thought I'd add this now. Although I loved Chinatown (written by Robert Towne who also script doctored the magnificent film The Godfather), it's Polanski's older & less financially successful films that I like best: Knife in the Water, 1963; Repulsion, 1965 (best horror film I've ever seen) and The Tenant, 1976.
