Stranger by the Lake is one sexy black comedy. It is provocative, intriguing and hilarious. I found the direction to be supeb and the dialogues immensely amusing. though definitely not for everyone's taste, it can satisfy most viewers. However, I must warn you that there's a crazy amount of male frontal nudity and sex, watch at your own risk.
One of the most enjoyable erotic thrillers that borrowed much from the Hitchcok style. I love the use of mirrors in the film, made all the suspense scarier than ever. I cringed so many times because I know bad things are coming on to the characters but I was just not sure when. The imagery was beautiful, acting was brilliant. The killer was a bit too easy to guess once we know the killer is a transvestite. It's a must see for anyone that interested in the revival of the genre.
A really cute film for.. lonely adults. Even though the stories are unbelievable and overwhelmingly romantic, you can't help but appreciate the acting from the star studded cast. Definitely a good film to watch when you are lonely and want to binge eating.
