Movie Info

This film is the product of an unlikely pairing between novelist Elmore Leonard and maverick screenwriter-director Paul Schrader. Leonard usually writes Detroit-based crime novels; this time, Schrader transports one of Leonard's quirkier, non-crime books to an L.A. scene. Christopher Walken plays slick ex-preacher and musical promoter Bill Hill, who is trying to rescue his former church organist Virginia Worrell (Conchata Ferrell) from an abusive husband.

The experience of seeing the film is subduing; the movie plays in a muted key.

Paul Schrader and comedy have probably never had more than a nodding acquaintance, and that's what they have in this tepid satire.

The end result is an effort that starts to vanish from one's memory minutes after it concludes...

A disaster--and not the kind that's fun to watch, either.

Pleasantly entertaining and intelligent, it does not create enough of a spiritual mystery to move the heart, but watching the characters droolingly circle one another has its own, more earthly rewards.

I saw it as a plot searching for a director.

A solid adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel, with a nice lead performance by Skeet Ulrich.

Although not destined for greatness, there are some appealing elements about this irreverent comedy that doesn't take itself too seriously; bizarre characters, off-the-wall concepts and absurdly funny lines.

Audience Reviews for Touch

Begins with an interesting premise, that an ex-monk has the power to heal, but degenerates into a passel of cliches injected, it seems, simply to finish the work, as if the director took a more important call mid-interview. You will cease to care as well although Tom Arnold heroically behaves throughout as if there were still a film to save.

Tried to write a review and failed so I'll stick with my thoughts while watching the film:

"This is exactly the film you'd get if Tarantino brought the rights to The Green Mile."
