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.

I saw it as a plot searching for a director.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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

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.

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."
