Touch is a 1997 film written and directed by Paul Schrader. It is based on a 1987 (though written ten years previously but his publishers did not want to publish it thinking it would be very hard to market) Elmore Leonard novel of the same name, and stars Christopher Walken, Bridget Fonda, Skeet Ulrich, Tom Arnold, Gina Gershon, Lolita Davidovich, Janeane Garofalo and Paul Mazursky. It was shot in Fullerton, California.

The film is a comic satire on the American evangelism industry. A young man, Juvenal (Ulrich) is apparently able to cure the sick by laying-on of hands. Ex-evangelist Bill Hill (Walken), tired of selling mobile homes for a living, persuades his friend Lynn (Fonda) to befriend the innocent ex-monk and encourage him to aim for the big time; but matters become complicated when the young couple fall in love, and even more complicated when fundamentalist August Murray (Arnold) takes exception to their relationship.

The soundtrack of the movie was composed and recorded by Dave Grohl, and released on his Capitol Records imprint, Roswell Records. The majority of the tracks are instrumental, with the exception of "How Do You Do", as well as two songs performed with Louise Post of Veruca Salt. The release would also mark the first time Grohl used his pseudonym Late, as credited in the liner notes, since the release of Pocketwatch in 1992.
