    I know this movie gets critical acclaim and always hearing about it but never watched it (kinda like Kramer vs Kramer). So wanted to know, did anyone here watch it and and is worth my time ?

    Great movie, John Houston plays one of the best villains of all time. The story, the performances, the dialogue are great. One of the few movies were the ending is not spoiled, and it's over 40 plus years old. The made a sequel but it was inferior.

    John Houston character Noah Cross was one of the influences on Daniel Day Lewis's performance in There Will Be Blood

    I rewatched this like a week ago. Its a classic detective film. Nicholson makes a fantastic, charismatic lead and the story is great.

    I always thought Jack Nicholson was a scene chewer especially his later films, but this is one of the few films he tones down his acting tics
