Watching "A Touch Of Evil" On TCM

It was great to watch the 1958 movie, “A Touch of Evil” directed by the great Orson Welles yesterday on Turner Classic Movies channel.

There were some fine performances all throughout this film about  murder, police corruption and overall shady activities in a Mexican border town. 177 more words

Horizons West (1952)

I’d have to call this Universal -International western by way of Budd Boetticher unusual. Unusual in the sense that there really isn’t an outright hero but rather two villains. 544 more words

Touch of Evil (1958, Orson Welles)

Touch of Evil is a visceral experience. Welles’s long takes and long sequences–in particular, the opening tracking shot, the apartment interrogation scene and the oil field interrogation at the end, these sequences depend on the viewer’s understanding of geography. 511 more words
