Touch of Evil
Now that�s a classic. Especially if you watch the result of Walter Murch�s effort at putting together the movie as close as possible to Orson Welles� original vision. Racy, fast-paced and intensely involving, it puts to shame many of today�s efforts to try and create thrillers. There are trademark Welles� dialogue-delivery and staging techniques. There is also a characteristic inventiveness and clever use of the medium; again putting to shame, many of today�s so-called renaissance men of cinema.
