The Stranger

The Stranger ★★★½

They really didn't try very hard when it came to the title. Which is a shame because this is a much more interesting movie than the generic moniker they settled on. The bulk of the film’s substance is its incredibly thick, ominous vibe, which fills you with a deep, palpable dread that doesn’t quite pay off the way you expect — the relative uneventfulness of the resolution is a pretty fascinating decision in and of itself. The lead performances are both superb, too.
