  • Excerpt: As with the other reviews here, I'm in agreement that the film has less than standard picture quality. Audio is perfectly fine for a film this age and extras are what could be expected for a film a minimalist as this one. The movie is pretty decent, and likely gets better with time.

  • Summary: 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.

  • Summary: There are times in this straightforward thriller in which the drama feels a little forced, as if Hitchcock is trying to wring every ounce of tension out of his cast, but that is to be expected from a drama that takes place in a single unbroken scene.

  • Summary: I thought there could've been more plot twists. In fact, the plot in general was a bit unbelievable. But, I did end up liking it.

  • Summary: Rope isn't one of my favorite movies; it's not even one of my favorite Hitchcock movies. But it is a favorite Jimmy Stewart performance. The rest of the cast is okay, not anything great.
