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.

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

"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. "
