F&C1958: Touch of Evil

It’s a self bronzer catastrophe!

Much tense!

I can see why the studio weren’t quite happy with this film. The tense maelstrom into depravity is difficult to parse — does the film really mean it (man), or is it a parody? Were the actors rolling around laughing while coming up with the “reefer” lines?

But anyway. It is awfully exciting.

Touch of Evil. Orson Welles. 1958.


I made this with totally the wrong sort of whisk{e,}y. It’s probably nice with a better brand.
