Touch of Evil, one of the last truly defining classics of the film-noir era, is an innovative and visually artistic masterpiece from auteur Orson Welles. Set on the U.S.- Mexico border, an exploded car bomb calls the attention of Mexican drug-enforcement agent Miguel Vargas, along with American police Captain Hank Quinlan. As details are unveiled, so unwinds the mass of corruption and moral decadence. Celebrating the centenary of Welles, this newly re-mastered feature from the BFI still captivates and thrills today.
