Reviewing TOUCH OF EVIL: Siskel and Ebert

The chapter on Touch of Evil in Tex[t]-Mex, an abbreviated version of which appeared in Chicanos and Film edited by the one and only Chon Noriega, was one of the hardest things I ever had to finish. I have to admit, it is not an easy chapter to read, and having to reread all of genius Stephen Heath's ruminations on Welles's classic, almost drove me bonkers--I still don't think I got it right, truth be told. In any event, Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel have an easier time of it in their review of the re-release of the film available here or by clicking the image below.
