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. He enlists a former Franciscan priest, a

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."
