Aro Favourite Touch of Evil, A


USA 1958, 106 minutes
Dir. Orson Welles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics, Cult / Film Noir


Aroview: Declaring its virtuosity right from the famous opening-shot, this late film-noir weaves a tale of murder and blackmail in a Mexican border-town with baroque, grandiose visuals and an audacious array of B-grade plot-twists.

Honest-man Charlton Heston investigates a corrupt police-force and stumbles over Joseph Cotton, Marlene Dietrich and Zsa Zsa Gabor before falling into the large lap of his nemesis: a bloated, evil Welles (one of his greatest roles). Score by Henry Mancini.
