Chinatown (1974) Written by Robert Towne. Directed by Roman Polanski.
Jack Nicholson as J.J. Gittes and John Huston as Noah Cross

J.J. Gittes: Why are you doing it? How much better can you eat? What can you buy that you can’t already afford?
Noah Cross: The future, Mr. Gits! The future! Now, where’s the girl? I want the only daughter I’ve got left. As you found out, Evelyn was lost to me a long time ago.
J.J. Gittes: Who do you blame for that? Her?
Noah Cross: I don’t blame myself. You see, Mr. Gits, most people never have to face the fact that, at the right time and the right place, they’re capable of anything.
