Two line Reviews - #56

Movie: Touch of Evil (1958)

A gripping Mexico-USA border cop-story that involves murder,a drug racket & acts of police cover-up.
Orson Welles, the director. Simply brilliant.
Orson Welles, the actor - Heroism at its best! Namma so called 'mass' heroes can learn a lesson or two on the fact that Heroism on cinema is all about 'How you carry yourself on screen'.
The stylish mexican cop played by Charlton Heston.

The climax was terrific. But could have been more clear. I think this confusion had to do with the different versions of the film as shown in the description in the opening slide.

Overall Score: 9.7/10
