Touch of Evil - Shot Study 1

Hmm wonder who is in charge of this situation. Orson Welles plays the loathsome Police Captain Hank Quinlan who is at the apartment to question the lover of a daughter whose father was blown to smithereens at the beginning of the movie Touch of Evil. Now that opening sequence is one of the most famous long takes in history - but lets look a little further into this much more subtle moment. Hot Mexican air, tension, TNT and doughnuts.
