Apart from the tedium of waiting or someone to open that chest and discover the hidden body which the hosts have tucked away for the sake of a thrill, the unpunctuated flow of image becomes quite monotonous.

"A crime for most, a privilege for some" is how Rupert classifies murder, but Hitchcock's eye-am-a-camera technique in Rope is after more than Nazi-superman residue still lurking after WWII.

Rope is Hitchock's underrated classic that contains some of the most unique filmmaking of it's time. Hitchcock was so far ahead of filmmakers back then and so far ahead of a lot of the filmmakers today.

While its fearless attempt to do something new makes it one of Hitchcock's most interesting movies, I can't pretend to regard it as anywhere near his best.

The supposedly invisible editing is more of a distraction than being really innovative.

Rope remains worth seeing, for its difference from cinema in general and from the rest of Hitchcock's work in particular.

Rope isn't merely a terrific movie; it is also a benchmark for which the intricate nature of the killer's mind can be simplified into immense clarity.

Brilliant despite the obvious "gimmick," one of Hitchcock's most subdued and affecting films.
