Touch of Evil


Dir. Orson Welles (1958) With a cast of thousands and just as many indelible scenes (personal favorite: Mercedes McCambridge’s leather-jacketed butch menacing Janet Leigh), Welles’s down-and-dirty noir stars the director himself as a bloated, corrupt border cop whose fate is foretold by Marlene Dietrich’s crystal-ball gazer: “Your future’s all used up.”
