Touch of evil (Motion picture)

Hank Quinlan is a police captain in a cesspool of corruption, a city on the Mexican-American border. He manipulates evidence in pursuit of his notions of justice. The bravura visual style creates a nightmare world more effectively than any preceding film noir. If Kiss Me Deadly is the climax of the initial noir style, this study of obsession with power and its corrupting effects (a recurring Wellesian theme) is perhaps its epitaph.

  • "On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan, Mexican-born police officer Mike Vargas agrees to investigate a car bombing. In so doing, he incurs the wrath of local police chief Hank Quinlan, a corrupt, bullying behemoth with a perfect arrest record.
