The Stranger (2022) Film review

Mark, an undercover cop, forms an intense, intimate relationship with Henry, a murder suspect, in an attempt to earn his trust and get a confession, risking both of their lives in the process.

The Stranger is an interesting little film about violence, it’s a dark film that tackles the several themes of violence but doesn’t show it. Which that in itself is a pretty interesting approach to take, which I do think the film does quite well, combine that with some really strong performances and some well put together music as well and you have yourself a suspenseful film that really has an interesting approach on violence. It’s slow burn element is also quite great especially when combined with the cinematography that adds so much to the film, the writing could have definitely been a bit stronger in some areas as it does lose some footing during the third act. But this is some really interesting stuff that I recommend.

The Stranger is available on Netflix.
