How Touch of Evil's Camerawork Surpasses Citizen Kane

In 1941, director Orson Welles released his debut picture, Citizen Kane, to little financial success but overwhelming critical praise. The film, influenced by the emerging noir style, utilized many of the genre’s mechanics but went far beyond usual conventions, showcasing a varying array of cinematic techniques that would come to be associated with Welles as a film auteur. Welles’s use of the camera, in particular, would come to define him as a unique artist; a broad palette of long takes, abrupt cuts, deep focus shots, and dizzying off-center shots from almost any imaginable angle make up the heart of Welles’s bag of cinematic tricks.
