Rope is the first color thriller of Hitchcock which,although not among the best films,made ​​history in cinema. And that's because Hitchcock turned it into a special ingenuity monoplane from beginning to end and did this by joining 8 shots in 10 minutes in one, giving the impression that the viewer watches a great shot with action progresses in real time.

"I've always wished for more artistic talent. Well, murder can be an art, too. The power to kill can be just as satisfying as the power to create."

Rope is a 1948 Alfred Hitchcock movie mainly noted for its technical accomplishments. This highly-charged thriller is based on both a real life murder case and a play by Englishman Patrick Hamilton (entitled Rope's End). The entire film ... read more

I remember very well the first time I saw this movie. Indeed, I had actually never heard of it but since it was directed by Alfred Hitchcock, I thought I should give it a try. Back then, I was quite blown away by the whole thing and I kept thinking about it through the years and more than 10 years later, I thought it was really time for a re-watch.

Description: An experimental film masquerading as a standard Hollywood thriller. The plot of Rope is simple and based on a successful stage play: two young men (John Dall and Farley Granger) commit murder, more or less as an intellectual exercise. They hide the body in their large apartment, then throw a dinner party. Will the body be discovered? ... (more)

A great movie

“I remember very well the first time I saw this movie. Indeed, I had actually never heard of it but since it was directed by Alfred Hitchcock, I thought I should give it a try. Back then, I was quite blown away by the whole thing and I kept thinking about it through the years and more than 10 years later, I thought it was really time for a re-watch. Well, this time again, I was really impressed. Indeed, I would go as far as saying that it is definitely one of the best movies directed by the great master. Personally, I always had a weak spot for movies with a simple set-up, you know, just one location, usually a house or an apartment, a handful of characters and a very smart plot. It is pretty straightforward but spellbinding when done properly. In this genre, it might be the best one I hav” read more

"Watched May My thoughts can be pretty well summed up by this: I had a beer I was drinking, which I finished early on in the movie; by the time I wanted another one I didn't even want to pause the movie so I could grab it, much less leave the couch for even a second, which means I didn't have that 2nd beer until the movie was over. I especially enjoyed the various ways death remains omnipresent throughout the entire film (including the frequent use of the word "late"), and was pleasantly surpri"

“Personally, though I love Vertigo, I've never actually been that interested in Hithcock's films, though I still check them out from time to time. Even though I did enjoy this one, as usual with some of Hitch's works, I did not think it was anything really special. The only thing in the film that I really enjoyed was the editing, which was completely unnecessary but still pretty awesome. Other than that, I just found the film to be pretty average. None of the characters I could identify myself with in the slightest, and all of the subplots about rivals and gayness and whatnot were completely unnecessary. Hitchcock's direction actually wasn't too special or anything, and the acting was actually pretty bad, with the exception of a very good performance from Stewart.

" Watched July 24th - Library DVD - Rewatch "After all, murder is or should be an art - not one of the seven lively perhaps, but an art nevertheless - And as such, the privilege of committing it should be reserved for those few who are really superior individuals." - Rupert Cadell I liked Rope the first time I saw it, but it had been a while since I'd seen it, and upon watching it again I have to bump it up to be included as one of Hitchcock's true masterpieces - just the way it was filmed as o"
