Annotation: "With his third feature film, The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog, Alfred Hitchcock took a major step toward greatness and made what he would come to consider his true directorial debut. This haunting silent thriller tells the tale of a mysterious young man (matinee idol Ivor Novello) who takes up residence at a London boardinghouse, just as a killer who preys on blonde women, known as the Avenger, descends upon the city. The film is animated by the palpable energy of a young stylist at play, decisively establishing the director’s formal and thematic obsessions."

Synopsis: One of Alfred Hitchcock's moodiest and most brilliant silent films, THE LODGER explores many themes that would reappear obsessively in Hitchcock's later works, including his delight in the ghoulish, the "man-accused-of-a-crime-he-did-not-commit" theme, and his understanding of the general public's thirst for sex and violence. A family suspects their mysterious lodger is a serial killer with a penchant for blonde girls--and that their daughter might be his next victim. Hitchcock once again focused on a modern-day Jack the Ripper in FRENZY (1972).

4 stars out of 5 -- "THE LODGER sees the director drawing on German expressionism to conjure up his own brand of 'pure cinema'."
