(1958) Written and directed by Orson Welles. Charlton Heston, Orson Welles, Janet Leigh. (100 min.)
Border-town corruption sabotages the honeymoon of a Mexican narcotics officer in Welles’s last masterpiece. Beginning with a legendary tracking shot of a car rigged with explosives, this is a ticking time bomb of moral ambiguity. “A wild masterpiece, a sleazy, grimy, jittery, and ultimately dazzling work of cinematic magic” (Seattle Weekly).
