Touch of Evil
Touch of Evil, directed by Orson Welles who is arguably one of the greatest of all time, ironically enough was not really a movie that I enjoyed or even had an easy time following. Everything about the movie makes it tough to keep up with. For example,the film noir wasn’t interesting to me and made the confusing story line, the fact that it was black and white, etc.
After talking to Mr. Monahan about the plot of the story I slightly started to understand it, but it was still a little difficult. I now understand that it was a about two groups of cops; one group is good and the other group is corrupt and don't follow the rules. Throughout the movie the sets of cops had conflict with each other for a variety of reasons.
While watching a Touch of Evil, one scene that I did understand was when one of the detectives looked over the house [of Sanchez, a murder suspect] but then after he did that the other cop found something that was planted to make it look skeptical of the cop. That shows the conflict that the type of cops have.
I think if there were subtitles the movie would slightly be a little easier to follow or even if the movie wasn't in the black and white because all of those factors contributed to my inability to follow the story. All and all this movie may have been liked by others but for me and a majority of people that I talked to about it, Touch of Evil was a difficult movie.
