    The supreme direction of Orson Welles commands this picture into the soaring heights of classical noir, and ensures that the film endures even to today. Though not a perfect film by any stretch, Touch of Evil is nonetheless a gripping wallow in the mud which pulls its audience down and dares them to stand back up.

    Touch of Evil marked Welles' return to American cinema after about a decade in Europe, and he returned to marvelous success. It is a…

    The plot of this movie overall was good. However, sometimes it felt like the movie was dragging on longer than expected. The multiple cuts of scenes and awkward conversations make it harder to follow. If it would of been a little quicker pace, the movie would be much more enjoyable to watch.

    Touch of Evil displays a perfect work of storytelling, camera work, and direction. It is a magnificent motion picture that is one of Orson Welles' finest films as well one of the crowning achievements of the film-noir genre.

    Right from the superb continuous tracking shot that constituted its famous opening long take to its suspenseful climax, this is a masterfully crafted and told movie that features splendid writing, some great characterizations, and certain plot devices that were somewhat ahead of…
