Critics reviews

Its unique editing construction—long shots that attempt to hide cuts by disguise through clever camera movements—is interesting considering the Hollywood style of “invisible” editing. ROPE isn’t exactly subversive, but it doesn’t play by the rules either—a distinctive feature for much of Hitchcock’s work.

The film’s material fineries are little more than undistinguished drawing-room doodads—candelabras, decanters—but it’s premised on a series of profound psychosexual hangups that reveal both a fascination with and fear of an imminent era of permissiveness. 1960’s Psycho may have sparked a period of unleashed, irrational screen terror, butRope, with its rampant Freudian paranoia, anticipated a coming decade of youth pictures, rife with psychoanalysis and teenage death joyriding.

Rope (1948) is, in many ways, a pivotal film in Hitchcock’s career, and an eccentric, aberrant work (in the literal, but also to some extent in the more common, figurative, sense of those words), both in relation to the Hitchcock corpus and to cinema in general.
