It Ropes you in...

"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

Well, this time again, I was really impressed. In... read more

Rope is one of those rare movies which is totally engrossing within less than five minutes, no doubt in my top 5 films by the master himself. Hitchcock successfully recreates the theatrical experience for the big screen. The set of Rope looks a bit fake and washed out and even the colour cinematography has a washed out feel to it, this all being part of the charm of course. The actors strand in un... read more

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? Director Alfred Hitchcock, fascinated by the possibilities of the long-take style, decided to shoot this story as though it were happening in one long, uninterrupted shot. Since the camera can only hold one 10-minute reel at a time, Hitchcock had to be creative when it came time to change reels, dis ... (more)

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"Alfred Hitchcock's 'Rope' is a film about two young men who commit murder as an "intellectual exercise". The film itself, Hitchcock's first in colour, is often seen as an intellectual exercise itself, its plot generally consigned to secondary consideration after its real-time structure, its long, uninterrupted takes and its large cyclorama backdrop. Although it is unfair to push 'Rope's suspenseful melodrama into the background of the discussion, the film does have several problems, not least th"
