Lo straniero Diretto da Orson Welles
A tour de force of visual style, The Stranger shrouds this pastoral idyll in dread and uncertainty, building to a climactic set-piece worthy of Hitchcock. Hubris was Welles’s perpetual subject—here he found it not only in one totalitarian monster, but also in the oblivious crowd in which he sought refuge.

[The Stranger] remains Welles’s most seriously underestimated work… Kino Lorber has issued a magnificent Blu-ray edition… The famous Welles attention to texture and detail, long missing from “The Stranger,” is back with a vengeance: an autumnal landscape slowly and implacably turned into a white wasteland by a dramatically resonant snowfall; close-ups that capture the pockmarks and wrinkles creeping into Kindler’s boyish face.

The Stranger isn’t exhilarating in the same fashion as those earlier films, or the later Falstaff or Touch of Evil; its technical virtuosity isn’t as playful, and its theme is (deceptively) more intimate and less ambitious, but these qualities are revealed as virtues. Cloaking his formal wit in surprisingly earnest despair, Welles made a film of implied perversity that retroactively asserts itself as a kissing cousin of Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt.
