A good movie

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I’m a huge fan of Orson Welles’ work, I was definitely eager to check I tout. After directing ‘Citizen Kane’, considered by many as the best movie ever made, at only 26 years old, he went to direct ‘The Magnificent Ambersons’, another massive feature, another classic, but the production was a nightmare and we never got ... read more

Wilson of the War Crimes Commission is seeking Franz Kindler, mastermind of the Holocaust, who has effectively erased his identity. Wilson releases Kindler's former comrade Meinike and follows him to Harper, Connecticut, where he is killed before he can identify Kindler. Now Wilson's only clue is Kindler's fascination with antique clocks; but though Kindler seems secure in his new identity, he feels his past closing in.

"Blossoming cinephiles who get around to The Stranger later in life may be startled by the film they actually see after potentially hearing of its mediocrity as a reflection of director Orson Welles’s desire to achieve a functional worker-for-hire anonymity following the brilliant but unprofitable one-two punch of Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons. No, The Stranger isn’t exhilarating in the same fashion as those earlier films, or the later Falstaff or Touch of Evil; its technical vir"

" Amazon Prime- 1hr. 34min. First Viewing There's a great idea behind The Stranger, one that could easily be made into a thrilling mystery/thriller, but this film just isn't adept enough to handle it. The cast is solid, and Welles's innovative camera work can be seen here, albeit slightly (admittedly, the cut of this film that I saw had not be cleaned or remastered at all, so it looked pretty damn rough), but the story just languishes; nothing happens for long periods of time and, when it does, t"

"First viewing - Sept. 23rd After watching two new movies earlier in the day, and thinking about how most of the films I've seen lately have been modern, I decided to watch something from the past. This was an interesting movie that's well put together and buoyed by the performances of Robinson & Welles. We spend the entire film with most of the pieces given to us up front and waiting to see how what we know will affect the characters involved. I do think both Welles & Robinson worked on far bet"
