I WAS WRONG (MAYBE): Reader emails have convinced me that my “it’s all economics” take on “Chinatown” (below) is probably wrong. I won’t back down for good until I’ve seen the movie again, but I’ll provisionally retract my criticism. Still think the kitten-kicking cartoonishness of the villain was over the top. But yes, the ending is great.
