30 Days of Queer Cinema - Day 13 | Stranger by the Lake

An air of quiet menace hangs over Alain Guiraudie's Stranger by the Lake (L'inconnu du lac), in which a young gay man's tryst with an enigmatic stranger at a popular cruising spot turns potentially dangerous after he accidentally witnesses a murder. At once a nailbiting thriller and a fascinating exploration of sexual politics, Stranger by the Lake is a dark and engaging look at how far one can go for empty pleasure, for love, and the sometimes blurred line in between.
