Default 'Touch of Evil: Limited Edition' - High-Def Digest Review

E has reviewed Orson Welles' 'Touch of Evil'. He says this is a genuinely remarkable crime thriller. The Blu-ray features spectacular picture, strong audio, and satisfying bonus features. This belongs in any respectable cinephile's collection.

Happy I preordered this. This was one of the films that helped shape my appreciation for film and most importantly camera work.

Some crazy(good) camerawork in this film. I just watched it tonight. That opening scene is gold.

I saw the restored print. Can you or someone tell me what the studios cut from the theatrical release and why?

Thank you

I never heard of this movie before, but it sounds really interesting. I'm going to have to check it out at some point this year.

There's a wonderfully written 58 page write up from Orson Welles himself included in this edition. It explains everything better than I could do.

Yes, I still have to read it. I didn't know if the booklet contained why the studios cut out certain material. I look forward to reading it. Thanks!

I picked this up at B&N yesterday and wow, just wow, this movie was fantastic. I have never seen the use of shadows be done in this manner before. It was great. The story was interesting and the characters were well done too. I give it an 8/10. I think I am going to pick up Double Indemnity when I get paid on the 20th.
