Stranger by the Lake

One of the most critically acclaimed films of the year, Stranger by the lake has been described as a modern-day Hitchcockian masterpiece. A picturesque cruising spot in the countryside of France sets the scene between desire and murder. Franck, a regular at the lake, meets the handsome Michel and soon falls in love with the mysterious stranger. When a body is discovered in the lake, Franck and Michel soon become primary suspects of the investigation. Stranger by the Lake is a unique, erotic thriller of seduction and sexual obsession that builds to an unforgettable and terrifying climax.

Last of the Unjust

Three decades after his cinematic landmark, Shoah, Claude Lanzmann once again reorients our understanding of the Holocaust. The Last of the Unjust is built around extended interviews with Rabbi Benjamin Murmelstein, the last surviving Jewish elder of Theresienstadt (the so-called “model” ghetto) and a divisive figure among the camp’s surviving inhabitants. Intercut with footage of Lanzmann himself revisiting specific sites in Vienna and the Czech Republic, the gregarious Murmelstein – recanting his “testimony” in German – gives over the unique harrowing perspective of an ordained Jew who worked for the Waffen SS and the notorious Adolf Eichmann. Murmelstein makes for a compelling paradox, leaving us to debate, rather than judge, his role in the madness of the time.
