  1. I.Camera's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    A directorial mid-career experiment, with extended tracking shots and a single location. What's most impressive is how un-stagey it all is, as James Stewart plays a Columbo-esque of cat and mouse with Leopold and Loeb stand-ins, all while a body rests under a dinner table. While not as ambitious as Notorious and his 1950s brilliancies, it remains one of Hitchcock's most interesting and effective puzzle pieces.

  2. McOpinionated's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    I really enjoyed this one. The long takes were great, but the cuts were annoying. Some great tense moments.

  3. Valerie Jouve's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    je n'arrive pas à regarder aucuns des films d'Hitchcock !!!!!! un peu énervant !!!!

  4. Ash's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    I'd imagine this was a very ambitious concept for a film at the time of making. It is a tough job to keep the audience on the edge of their seats for 80 mins with only two settings and a few actors, but this is exactly what "Rope" achieves. My only issue is with the ending of the film, but I would imagine there couldn't have been any other type of ending considering the sensibility of America in 1940s

  5. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    Although it would be easy to confuse Rope with the attitudes of the two main characters - smug, self-absorbed, interested in creating something audacious and impressive just for the same of being able to say it was done - I think it holds up as a fine piece of thrilling cinema. Few films spend the entire runtime showing you that ticking bomb under the chair. This one does.The ticking bomb just happens to be a corpse.

  6. Zachary T.'s rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    My new favourite Jimmy Stewart role. He nails the slow but sure realization that his hypothetical ideas have wrought terrible, irreversible pain. Hitch uses the one-take framework to do what he does best -- linger.

  7. SonOfRambow's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    I prefer theatrical Hitchcock to cinematic Hitchcock - his most mature work for sure. I'm throwing out a wild guess that Fassbinder borrowed the staging and lighting usage from Rope for Berlin Alexanderplatz.

  8. tinderness's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    Noch sehr konstruiert der Fall, aber der Suspense unvergleichlich Hitchcock. Er muss noch die Ungezwungenheit und die überraschenden Wendungen lernen, die später seine Meisterschaft ausmachen. Und die Geschichte muss "normaler", einfacher werden, so daß wir sie auf uns beziehen. können und sie uns erschrecken läßt. Der Rekurs auf das Narrativ vom Übermenschen vermag dies nicht zu leisten.

  9. CJG's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    Love the way this film starts with a murder. Camera move decisions alone make this one to be seen. Great dialogue and a fantastic 'No!! She's going to open it!' moment. James Stewart steals it as always.

  10. Log Lady's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    Rewatch ~ Good performances throughout and great use of long takes, but the original play doesn't give much room for anything else. Hitchcock's adaptation may even be more static with a less compelling dynamic between the main characters, and the creeping suspense has turned into mild expectation. The play would probably be more entertaining to see on stage than watching the events unfold in cinematic form.

  11. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    It was kinda boring; Jimmy Stewart is wonderful, though, and the subtext really almost bubbles up to text.

  12. Robert H's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    Beautiful single set production with long shots, long takes and great dialogue - certainly not an LGBT film though (as tagged by MUBI). Great entertainment, a thrilling style and straight-faced performances. A wonderful film.

  13. olivrstal's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    murder is a crime for most men but a privilege for the few

  14. Pinturaud's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    Film tourné avec une maîtrise parfaite où la tension monte au fur et à mesure que le piège se referme. Qui sont réellement les victimes ?

  15. Ryan Brennan's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    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.

  16. jewelsofglory's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    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.

  18. Lu Who's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    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)

  20. xer vokun's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

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

  23. Faysal Kadow's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    Tense and suspenseful like every other Hitchcock film

  24. Mariana Cruz's rating of the film Festim Diabólico

    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 stage. It is obviously a technical experiment but one that, to my mind,works perfectly. Freud and Nietzsche are also guests to this party
