Jay Dyer and Jay Weidner explore the multiple layers of corruption as depicted in the film Chinatown which are present throughout the strata of our society. As a burgeoning Los Angeles struggles to establish itself as a vital city, the power elite take this as an opportunity to make great financial gains for themselves. We learn that the archetypal figures portrayed in this film are representative of what is happening in the real world. This film presents a brutal honesty of the world in the 1930s and the rampant corruption of the power elite who believe they can do whatever they want, to whomever they wish, with no consequence for their actions. This conversation with Jay Dyer and Jay Weidner was originally webcast September 25, 2017.
