    The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog

    ★★★★★

    When most people think of Alfred Hitchcock, it’s movies like PSYCHO, VERTIGO, REAR WINDOW and NORTH BY NORTHWEST that come to mind. Many viewers seem to have forgotten his silent films of the 1920s, of which he made nine. THE LODGER: A STORY OF THE LONDON FOG is one of these films and what a magnificent film it is.

A story about a man’s inner struggles while dealing with the emotional aftermath of a…
