Rope

Alfred Hitchcock Estados Unidos, 1948

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

Metaphorically a tryst between murderers subliminally trying to get it noticed by their non-understanding friends in a time homosexuality was a secret. Made at the start of McCarthyism, it’s the perfect analogy for having to hide one’s nature from a close-minded world, always in fear it’s open and under everyone’s noses. A skeleton that will destroy them either internally if kept secret or their life if discovered.
