Chinatown (blu-ray)

A private detective finds himself in over his head when he takes on a case involving the richest and most powerful people in Chinatown. Bonus features include commentary, featurettes, a trailer, and more.
Special features: Commentary by screenwriter Robert Towne with David Fincher; Other, Water and power HD, Chinatown, an appreciation, The begining and the end, Filming, The legacy; Theatrical trailer HD.

One of my favorite films: It's just so uncomfortable all the way to the end, where it could possibly change your life. Everything about this film reaches the finest levels of the film craft.
I am reviewing the blu-ray due to the outstanding special features, not only the long, out in the field interview with Robert Towne but also the unbelievable documentary of the historical building of the aqueducts. Water and power HD is an important urban planning documentary and should stand on its own. ~Mike

The documentary is very recent and I did not get the date of production.
