  1. alice's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    Novello è estremamente iconografico: una macchia d'inchiostro sfumata dalla nebbia.

  2. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    The film that would lay out the groundwork for one of the most important and innovative oeuvres in cinematic history!

  3. Luis Pires's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    This early Hitchcock has some beautiful shots - the see-through ceiling with the footsteps, his arrival at the house, the pursuit at the end, the close-ups - and a good soundtrack by Sawhney, apart from the two songs with lyrics, for obvious reasons.

  4. Mahda Purmahdi's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    This is probably the earliest example of what we call a "Hitchcockian" film, and it is a first in many aspects, for which it must be celebrated, but the script is disappointing really. It tries to surprise us with the final answer to the initial question (is he the killer?) and even if we are surprised, that's not how Hitch does it in his best pictures. No Suspense in that.

  5. Sara Lucas's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

  6. Benjamin Bland's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    Unfortunately one version currently doing the rounds has an appalling soundtrack from Nitin Sawhney. Avoid that one, really detracts from the film.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    Déjà le récurrent thème hitchcockien du faux coupable, dans un film génial et de bout en bout surprenant et envoûtant. Quelques plans inoubliables font de cette oeuvre mythique, une production exceptionnelle où se marient avec délectation l'angoisse, l'humour et le suspense... www.cinefiches.com

  8. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    A ground-breaking silent film; Hitchcock, already a master.

  9. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

  10. Adam M's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    Fourth star is for the gay-panic subtext, whether or not it's intentional.

  11. Allison Rung's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    I had read somewhere that this was the first movie that Hitchcock considered a Hitchcock movie. Why? Thinking about it....

  12. Lintang A.'s rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    Great suspenful story in silent era

  13. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    Early gem from Hitchcock, and it's remarkable how much of his M.O. was already in place. Unlike Lang, he finds some humor and romance in the idea of a city gripped by hysteria, and he would return to the idea in a more satisfying form nearly 50 years later with Frenzy. Crowning Hitchcockian touch: the hero and villain both have the same fetish. But for a Hitchcock film, it's all in how you release it.

  14. postblueink's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

  15. Caden JJ's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    One of Hitchcock's earliest films, it shows off many of his traits in future films. The film guides you into a very specific way to make you think one thing, until the final moments of the film when you will put into a very different way of looking at what has come before in the film. Ivor Novello is perfect as the eerily creepy lodger while the added suspense to his character makes for a great watch.

  16. Mister No's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    Superbe version restaurée de 2014.

  17. Druvis's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    I love silent films, and Alfred Hitchcock is no exception with a very good reason. The film is made visually stunning and had some innovative moments (for example when it was possible to see the lodger walking in his room due to the noise he made). The vocal songs in the remastered version was something completely new. At first it was disturbing, but it hightligted the scenes brilliantly.

  18. Tutu888's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    The Best of the early Hitchcock. Creepy and innovative. And the first of many "who dunnit?" movies by the great director.

  19. Rattzz Matanzano's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    A brilliant and visual movie. The inspiration of many things.

  20. Charles Coleman's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    3 1/2. Very effective thrill picture about a guy who may or may not be a killer who also falls in love with a woman who's mother think he's a killer. Surprisingly very romantic film as well. Hitchcock coming into his own with a glimmering residue of his Eisenstein influence. Excellent movie.

  21. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    An entertaining film from Hitchcock's silent period in England. A sign of greater things to come down the road for the great director.

  22. Jon's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    There's a killer on the loose in your area. He wears a scarf around his mouth. He only kills blonde women. You also wear a scarf around your mouth. You also ambiguously pursue a young blonde woman. You carry a handbag containing a gun, a map of all the places where the murders occurred, newspaper clippings, and a photo of one of the victims. You're not very smart. Early Hitchcock is pretty, but clunky and contrived.

  23. ach's rating of the film The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog
