Yet while he is a suspected serial killer, Novello’s lodger is also a romantic hero who becomes the object of affection to Daisy Bunting (June), the daughter of the house, who steadfastly protests his innocence. Hitchcock creates competing, unambiguous points of view, both contradictory and undecidable, that focus on the identity of the Lodger. Is the Lodger an aristocratic, amateur sleuth seeking to capture the criminal who murdered his sister or is he that criminal himself? Is he a figure of threat or sympathy?

Hitchcock cuts to a medium two-shot as the Lodger hesitates, intoxicated by her golden curls. Is he afraid of the kiss and of the desires it awakens or is he overtaken by longing? Finally, slowly, in tight close-up, their white faces framed against a black background, the couple kiss, and Hitchcock cuts to an overhead shot as Daisy’s head and eyes fall back in a swoon. The ending of The Lodger is both doubled and ambiguous. After the Lodger has been exonerated, and the real murderer has ostensibly been caught, we see the Lodger in long shot languishing on a hospital bed where the doctor reports that while he has had a severe nervous strain his youth and energy will pull him through.

These competing perspectives are sustained by exploiting the distinction between character point of view and the point of view of the narration. In this mode of romantic irony the lure of human perversity is a competing source of attraction that often seems blunted and contained by the romance rather than serving to inspire it.
