Touch of Evil

A stark, perverse story of murder, kidnapping and police corruption in a Mexican border town.

“Perhaps the most surprising thing about Orson Welles' 1958 Touch of Evil is the way it continues to surprise. No amount of repeated viewings can dull the edge of its sinister ambience or soften the visual excitement Welles brought to this quintessentially cinematic film.

“Photographed by Russell Metty, Touch of Evil is one of the standard-bearers for the kind of eye-catching, bravura camera work Welles favored. Expressionistic in the extreme, filled with shadows, angles and cinematic flourishes, the film raises the usual brooding nightmare ambience of film noir to a level few other pictures have attempted.
Best of all is Marlene Dietrich, who wore a black wig to play Tanya, the owner of a local dive who delivers nothing but drop-dead lines.” - LA Times
