The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog ★★★★½

I LOVED THIS MOVIE.

I was emotionally invested (so much so that I was fully ready to throw things if Our Heroine ultimately ended up with the Cop Boyfriend).

I didn't know where it would eventually lead (I wasn't SURE if the lodger was Bad or not, ditto the Cop Boyfriend).

The climactic scene had me LITERALLY on the edge of the couch (TRULY IT COULD HAVE GONE EITHER WAY and while I would not have been surprised if there was a downer ending, I would have been GUTTED).

That shot of the lodger headed downstairs where you can only track his progress by his hand on the banister is CHILLING AF and I loved it.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SO GOOD.
