Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 28 February 2004
Welles was light years ahead of his contemporaries. So much so, it's not hard to understand why the studio system shunned his vast, innovative talent, and more particularly his vast, insatiable ego. Every aspect of Touch of Evil, a flawed epic if ever there was one, shows the touch of genius within Welles - the breathtaking cinematography, the camera angles, the quirky approach to script and plotting, use of sound and music.
I doubt if there is one serious director today who does not owe a debt to the groundbreaking work by Welles. Even Hitchcock appear to have learned lessions (see any parallels between the studied stylisation in Touch of Evil and the master's approach to Psycho?
Listen, watch and learn how it all began!
