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

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. In... read more

Is Murder an Art?

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)

Exploring Hitchcock (7/12-7/25) (14 movies items)

"Probably the only Hitch rewatch in which my opinion of the film went down. I used to think this was something close to his magnum opus (though at this time I despised Rear Window and didn't care for Vertigo, and Psycho was the only one of his films I earnestly enjoyed), but I found the meat of the party to be kind of a drag (honestly the real-time experiment negatively affects the film's pacing). But still; this is a rather brilliant and perverse murder story with John Dall giving an absolute to"

Dream Dictionary (878 music items)

"Rope Dreams of a rope signify that you are learning and exploring a new dimension of your being and learning the ropes. A rope symbolizes a strong connection between you and someone else. If you dream of being tied up by a rope, then you are feeling confined and stuck, and are holding back your true feelings. Also, consider the condition of a rope, which reflects the strength of your connection. It you are walking on a tightrope, then your partnership is in a very precarious condition. "
