The story is about a group of men strangle one of their friends and hide him in a closet, then invite guest over to test how well they committed the crime - think they had achieved the perfect crime. Okay here I have to be honest about This movie and that is that the movie is slow and really boring, The acting is fine but the characters are forgettable and this is the worst Alfred Hitchcock film.

3.5/4 

A standout in Hitchcock's filmography for it's unique choices in camerawork and editing. I think the 'gimmick' of presenting this film as one continuous take works effectively, becuase of the setting, characters and dialogue. It gives off the feeling of watching a play. The intrigue escalates, along with the tension, at the speed of a slow moving train. The wait isn't for a mystery to be solved, but for the cocky killers to be found out. 'Rope' is a taut verbal game of over self satisfaction.

There are times in this straightforward thriller in which the drama feels a little forced, as if Hitchcock is trying to wring every ounce of tension out of his cast, but that is to be expected from a drama that takes place in a single unbroken scene.

Can murder be Art???

'Humanity, It seems is for the weak and weary.’

Two young men, Brandon Shaw (John Dall) and Philip Morgan (Farley Granger), murder one of their classmates, David Kentley (Dick Hogan), for the sheer thrill of it just know what it feels like! Brandon, who is so satisfied by his "perfect crime", decides to host a going away party with David’s body stuffed in the old chest that serves as a buffet table. Among his guests are David's family and his girlfriend, as well as their former schoolmaster Rupert Cadell (James Stewart), whose ideas about a few superior individuals being privileged to murder inferior human beings are what triggered Brandon and Philip to strangle David with a rope.

Phillip, however, regrets doing it from the moment after it happens and it very uneasy throughout the m...

"Rope" by Yojimbo

Two upper class intellectuals plan the "perfect" murder of an old school friend for the sheer thrill of it and hold a dinner party for his friends and family with the corpse hidden within the room. Rope is most famous for its "one shot" conceit as the story takes place entirely within the same room, Hitchcock concealing (albeit somewhat clumsily) the cuts between reels. I feel however that is the least interesting aspect of the film, as the ideas expressed within, the sharp dialogue and Hitch's usual ability to crank up the tension are the real reason why it works. Hitchcock plays with the audience, placing us in the room with characters, they and their conversations even being demoted to off-screen from time to time as he constantly reminds us of the foul deed that could be discovered at...

Rope review

Brandon Shaw (Dall) and Phillip Morgan (Granger) strangles David to death. They still continue with the party for Mr .Kentley. Publisher Rupert Cadell (Stewart) suspects something and discusses about murder. Screenplay was well written with the following quotes: Janet – “There is a reason for everything.” “He’s never late.” Rupert –“You murdered! You choked the life out of a fellow human being who could live and love as you never could, and never will again!” “This world and the people in it have always been dark and incomprehensive to me.” “Did you think you were God Brandon.” “It’s what society is going to do.” Brandon – “We all do strange things in our childhood.” Its score was apt for certain scenes and the acting was good. Rope is one of the director’s well crafted pictures...
