Rope

Snoogans - wrote on 01/05/13

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.
