    It will leave you dangling from a rope

    When two wealthy and bored young men decide to do away with an old prep-school friend, that's bad enough. These two are perverse enough to decide to have a party with his body lying in the trunk they are serving food from. And if that's not enough, the guest list includes the girlfriend, their friend's parents, the girlfriend's ex-boyfriend and the housemaster from their prepschool (James Stewart). Hithcock does an amazing job, once again, of having this whole film take place from this one apartment. You see the two young men start fighting each other as the evening wears on and people start asking questions. It is a night fraught with tension right up to the end.

    The Story of the Perfect Murder Directed Perfectly

    This film was fantastic! I had seen it when I was much younger and remembered it being good, but having just re-watched it I was struck by how much it felt like a filmed play. The very long shots helped establish the real-time aspect of this thrilling story and Hitchcock's brilliant directing really shines. Great performances all around and with any Hitchcock picture, every moment feels like it was carefully thought out and executed for the greatest effect. Watching Jimmy Stewart (Rupert) piece together the evidence was as exciting as watching John Dall (Brandon) and Farley Granger (Phillip) try to keep it together. I've read that Hitchcock wasn't particularly fond of this film, and I'll grant that he certainly has created better films, but I'd take an evening of Rope over an evening of Final Destination 3 any day.

    great job of cast and acts, a bit grotesque, but great Hitchcock film

    Great, but a bit grotesque especially when Brandon tied up some books for David's dad with the same rope that he had used to kill David with, and then stuffing the body under a coffin that they serve a dinner on (inviting all of David's friends and parents) but overall it was great cast. I kept thinking, 'when will he find out?' all during it.

    Technologically top notch with ok storyline

    I love Alfred Hitchcock and Jimmy Stewart solo and better together, but their first collaboration could have been better. Jimmy Stewart holds the picture together with his top notch performance as the curious boarding school head master to John Dall and Farley Granger. The storyline is a little grotesque, but enjoyable with Hitch's first crack at color films, and long, uncut takes in the scenes using thousands of feet of film at once. Good!
