"Alfred Hitchcock's 1926 silent melodrama about a Ripper-style killer is gripping in its sheer brio and control" - The Guardian ★★★★★
The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (1927) was Alfred Hitchcock’s first major commercial and critical success. Based on a story by Marie Belloc Lowndes, the film is a masterpiece of atmospheric thriller filmmaking. It contains many of Hitchcock’s subsequent trademark themes, and also features his first recognisable film cameo.
This screening will be accompanied by a new live score from Minima (“one of the leading bands accompanying silent film in Europe” - Robert Rider, Head of Cinema, Barbican Centre, London).
