Watched Chinatown last night for maybe the zillionth time. Don’t know zillionth, exactly – my habit being never to go past two, which is plenty – just know it must be a big number on account of how people say it. Chinatown is Bernie’s favorite movie by far, and easy to see why: it’s all about a detective and water. He gets fired up every time. “Mulholland! There it is right there – the first guy who figured out how to rape the water supply.” Mulholland – obviously some perp. We’ll take him down some day, me and Bernie. As for the story itself, I got completely lost. One thing, though – the detective, Jake, is not nearly as smart as Bernie. Did you see what happened to his nose? Hard to watch. If anyone ever tried to do something like that to Bernie …
Plus I get the idea that the Chinatown case didn’t close the way we like to close them. Maybe Jake the detective should have had someone like me beside him.
