  1. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Rope

    This is no mere experiment or "gimmick picture"; this is one of Hitchcock's greatest works ever. While the smooth execution of the long takes is certainly impressive, it's the details and nuances captured in those shots that's truly astonishing. Naturally, it's also highly suspenseful and I adore the way it challenges the taboos of its period with frankness and morbid humor. It takes many risks, and pays off, I feel.

  2. ryan brennan's rating of the film Rope

    A small scale but ambitious piece of filmmaking. The setting and narrative are tightly wound and supremely controlled. The performances are very theatrical but they didn't feel out of place here, as it has the characteristics of a stage play. The camerawork is pioneering (you can see the impact this had on many modern filmmakers) and subversive.

  3. jewelsofglory's rating of the film Rope

    Fantastic film! Hitchcock achieves seamless montage without a cut. The critique of Ayan Rand’s barabaric philosophy is sorely needed and subsequently this film is very underrated. One of Hitchcock’s top 5.

  4. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film Rope

    re-watched. iconic gay film! tension is superb. just a little let down by the ending, as often with uncle hitch (exceptions: the birds, psycho, vertigo, frenzy)

  5. janh24's rating of the film Rope

  6. xer vokun's rating of the film Rope

    One should keep an eye on that window. Tension rises slowly and rarely falls.

  7. simona dumitriu's rating of the film Rope

  8. aaa093's rating of the film Rope

    "Did you think you were God, Brandon?"

  9. F/K's rating of the film Rope

    Tense and suspenseful like every other Hitchcock film

  10. Mariana Cruz's rating of the film Rope

    Hitchcock was exceptional at manipulating structural elements of the narrative, like time and space, in order to generate tension.The illusion that this was all filmed in one take -it actually wasn't and you can notice the cuts -makes it feel claustrophobic and similar to a theater stage. It is obviously a technical experiment but one that, to my mind,works perfectly. Freud and Nietzsche are also guests to this party

  11. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Rope

    Hitchcock’s clever little exercise of mise-en-scène. His early work was often a bit too wordy and lacking camera movement, but Rope executed the one-take shot well accompanied by a sharp script.

  12. Nuno J. F. Fernandes's rating of the film Rope

  13. DaraDON's rating of the film Rope

    Comes in like a steam train, blows its load and then takes its sweet time kicking off again - but when it does it punts you right through the goal posts.

  14. Kadjavsi's rating of the film Rope

  15. FISCHER's rating of the film Rope

    Chef-d'oeuvre du film "noir" d'un brillant cynisme absolu dont l'insoutenable tension, entre paranoïa et mondanité, frise la perfection, pour notre plus grand plaisir ! www.cinefiches.com

  16. lgcoll's rating of the film Rope

    Very neat, clever little film. Also notable as an early Hollywood portrayal of a gay couple.

  17. hemachandra's rating of the film Rope

  18. Ligia Prodan's rating of the film Rope

  19. Luca Soldati's rating of the film Rope

    Narrazione magistrale che tiene lo spettatore col fiato sospeso senza mai rilassarsi, facendo provare le sensazioni dei due assassini. Viene fatta provare forte ansia grazie allo sfruttamento del nascondiglio del corpo. Inoltre i bei dialoghi rendono tutto fluido e naturale. Regia ottima e geniale che crea un finto unico pianosequenza. L'opera è tecnicamente eccelsa. Ottimi i tre protagonisti, funzionali i comprimari

  20. SpacePirate's rating of the film Rope

    Hitch's darkest film to date, a nice precursor to Vertigo and Psycho. The long takes are great and add to the tension of the already engaging one room drama script, making this one of Hitch's most successful films in his canon. Dall is great as a narcissistic asshole, Granger plays a nervous wreck well, and Stewart, who felt miscast, anchors the whole affair well with his calm directness. Essential viewing in my eyes

  21. viola mombe's rating of the film Rope

    uno dei miei preferiti, breve intenso ed inesorabile. indimenticabile lo skyline di New York sullo sfondo, le luci finali provenienti dall'insegna che cambiano colore e lo sparo fuori dalla finestra
