  • Critic Reviews of "Touch of Evil"

    Los Angeles Times
    March 12, 2013

    Expressionistic in the extreme, filled with shadows, angles and cinematic flourishes, the film raises the usual brooding nightmare ambiance of film noir to a level few other pictures have attempted.

    Chicago Tribune
    March 12, 2013

    Having the Touch of Evil envisioned by our most creative filmmaker, is a wondrous gift no movie lover should miss.

    New Yorker
    March 12, 2013

    [Welles'] scenes with brothel-keeper Marlene Dietrich have nothing to do with the plot and everything to do with the rotting heart of this amazing fable: the apotheosis of pulp.

    Entertainment Weekly
    September 07, 2011

    Indeed, just to see and hear the extraordinary 3 minute and 20 second opening sequence -- a fluid tour de force tracking shot -- without impediment of opening credits and street-sound-masking movie score is accomplishment enough.

    April 06, 2007

    I first saw it when I was 14 and thought it was one of the worst pictures ever -- garish, oppressive, and appallingly overacted. Grown up, I'd go with those same adjectives, except now I think it's one of the best.

    Time Out

    A sweaty thriller conundrum on character and corruption, justice and the law, worship and betrayal, it plays havoc with moral ambiguities.

    Independent (UK)
    July 16, 2015

    It is typical of Orson Welles that he takes a B-movie thriller set on the Mexican border and gives it a Shakespearian grandeur.

    Little White Lies
    July 10, 2015

    Like the bomb that's lobbed in the boot of the soft-top car in its opening scene, Touch Of Evil is a film where we can hear the faint sound of ticking in our heads, but don't realise what the problem is before it's far too late.

    Electric Sheep
    July 10, 2015

    Touch of Evil deserves to be watched multiple times, not for the story, but to absorb its brilliance and audacity.

    Radio Times
    July 09, 2015

    Welles made the film that virtually capped a style he had helped create: you could say that the span of film noir started with Citizen Kane and ended with this movie.

    Times (UK)
    July 09, 2015

    The bravura of the opening sequence of Orson Welles's last Hollywood picture grabs you by the throat.

    July 09, 2015

    Adapted by Welles from Whit Masterson's pulp thriller Badge of Evil, it had streaks of teen degradation and reefer madness, and the most intense interracial relationship since The Searchers.
