The Synopsis for The Stranger (1946) 1080p

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.

The Reviews for The Stranger (1946) 1080p

Taught, suspenseful thrillerReviewed byAlberto-7Vote: 8/10

This film has been knocked by many people saying that Orson Welles was forced to work within the strict confines of the Hollywood system. I have absolutely no problem with this. Welles is a master craftsman. He made great films, period. In an interview he said that the studio cut out " a couple of reels" that take place in South America at the beginning of the story that he felt was the best part of the movie. As a viewer I feel that the film is compact and taut. Adding more to it would not help(in my opinion). On the contrary, I think adding more might make the film sluggish. As it stands the film remains dark. You feel that evil is present. You are just not sure what is going to happen next.

The performances in this film are for the most part excellent. Edward G. Robinson is amazing. This could have been a cardboard thin good-guy part. Instead he turns the character of Wilson into a smart, cunning hero. He is self-assured not obsessed. He understands what most people in the town don't: Kindler is a monster who is capable of anything. To catch such a man you have to be several steps ahead of him. Also excellent is Konstantin Shayne as Meinike. You can see the fear and madness in his eyes as he repeats "I am travelling for my health, I am travelling for my health..." before going through customs. Make no mistake, this man is "an obscenity that must be destroyed" to quote Wilson. Just look at his scene with the photographer in South America. He is used to people following his orders. Welles is also very good as Kindler/Rankin. There are moments that you actually feel sympathy for him. His obsession with fixing the town clock is very significant. Here is a man who needs things to be precise and structured. He wants total control of his environment(a good example is how he treats his wife). Welles hints at this man's mania but keeps him human. Even though you want him to be caught, you can't help wondering if he'll get away. Loretta Young is unfortunately just average in this film. She has some good moments (especially in the final scene when she confronts Rankin/Kindler)but her hysterics are just too much. The scene where Wilson is showing her the Nazi atrocities is well played. She keeps a certain composure that works well.

Overall, a very well made thriller with top notch performances and solid direction by one of cinema's masters. I give it 8 clock towers out of 10.

Painfully disappointing.Reviewed bykingdaddy8Vote: 3/10

You'd expect an Orson Welles movie to be better. Heck, you'd expect that the subject matter, a major Nazi on the run, might inspire a good script. But it's the laughably improbable script that sucks The Stranger into the black hole of turkeydom. (How does the villain fit as quickly and smoothly into American society as we're supposed to believe? Isn't it a bit odd, at his own wedding, that none of his family or friends show up as guests? After a certain point in the plot, why not just arrest him, rather than face screaming headlines, ESCAPED NAZI MASTERMIND RUNS AMOK IN SUPREME COURT JUSTICE'S HOME TOWN?) Plus, the final scene is foreshadowed in such a thuddingly obvious way that you'll likely bust out laughing. Welles' own acting is bad, confined to raising his left eyebrow and staring distractedly away from whomever is talking to him. Skip it and watch The Third Man or A Touch of Evil again instead.

Gripping, engrossing piece of filmReviewed byJolieVote: 10/10

I first watched "The Stranger" on a cold Saturday night. It was pitch black outside, a fitting setting in which to watch this chilling film.

The story unfolds like an onion, with the facts slowly revealed as the skin is peeled away. We learn that a Nazi criminal,Meinike,will be allowed to escape from prison. It is only when he visits fellow comrade Kindler that we understand why. Kindler was the worst of the Nazi war criminals, as he was the creator of the death camps and all of their savage technology. He kills his friend to escape suspicion, but ironically, the discovery of Meinike's body only furthers the tarnishing of his reputation. Each act of violence Kindler commits drives him farther to the edge of his sanity...or insanity, depending on your point of view. He can only find solace in tinkering with the town clock. It's as though through fixing the clock, he can fix parts of his life as well. He needs order. When he realizes he cannot have it, he attacks the grandfather clock. It's as though the one stable thing in his life is gone. Also, remember how the clock is whirling at the beginning of the movie? It whirls at the end as well. It gives the film closure, and also shows how the entire situation in the town was broken while Kindler was there. A fascinating film, "The Stranger" will be on your mind long after the credits have scrolled down the screen.
