Re: RARA-AVIS: Touch of Evil

This is one of my favorites. I probably like Welles' Lady From Shanghai and Third Man a little bit more (yeah, I know Carol Reed directed Third Man - but Welles must've been involved at some level, especially with the camera angles in that one), but this is a terrific movie. Absoultely brilliant filmmaking - both the camera angles and the way the soundtrack is at times slightly disjointed from the characters creating a very jarring effect. Btw. Welles has on fat makeup for this one - this was made before he got heavy. Kind of prophetic Dietrich warning him to watch out for those candy bars.
