The first time I had ever heard of Chinatown it was in Lost, when Sawyer calls Jack (who had been cut on the nose) "Chinatown." 

The first thing I noticed in this movie is that nothing was ever seen or heard that Gittes didn't see or hear. There were a few scenes where this was most prominent, when Gittes would be spying on someone, and you weren't able to hear what the people were saying, or could only see people through binoculars. Director Polanski made it very apparent that we were following Gittes, and not following the actual story.

Can't wait!
