Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "Touch of Evil" (1958)

Another movie that actually came out two weeks ago, but it's too good to skip over. Orson Welles' Touch of Evil is a classic film noir about corruption on a Mexican border town, starring a big cast that includes himself, Charlton Heston and Janet Leigh among others. Filled with typical Orson Welles flourishes, most famously that 3-minute opening tracking shot, this is a movie that was butchered by the studio upon initial release and not restored to the director's full vision until 1998- but when it was it was, the plot was finally somewhat comprehensible and now it's surely one of the best and most out there movies the eccentric Welles ever made. Check it out.
