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

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. 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
View all Rope reviews
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)

"Re-watch - Jan. 5th Rope remains one of my favorite of Hitch's films, and was just as good the second time around. It's so wonderfully well-crafted, and I can't find any fault with it. "

Fall Horrorfest 2018 (40 movies items)

" Watched October 17th Rating: This one wasn't on my list to revist, but I just got a free trial to the Shudder subscription service and when I went to take a look at their 24/7 horror stream it happened to be on. A definite classic, that has been praised by many here on listal and throughout cinematic history. I still enjoy it, the casting was great: John Dall is what I'd describe today as a "face actor", watching his expressions as he delivers lines is a treat. Farley Granger is delightfull"

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"
