Review rate : B+

“..the movie is voyeuristic, sure, but in a way that evokes Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window more than William Friedkin's Cruising..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 4

“..the film exhibits a welcome streak of offbeat humour throughout, including a hapless voyeur whose advances are constantly and cruelly rejected..”
by Bruce Demara [Toronto Star]
4 of 4

“..spare, steely, sexually explicit in a way that transcends mere provocation, Stranger by the Lake is vital cinema..”
by Adam Nayman [Globe and Mail]
3 of 4
