Rope (Alfred Hitchcock – 1948) B+

Is the James Stewart character, Rupert, a bit too smart here? Perhaps. On the other hand what the hell was Brandon thinking making the nervous mess Phillip his partner in his psychotic plan. This film is almost 80 yet it suffers nothing from the age. Tight, macabre with homosexual subtext and discussions of murder over a nice dinner party.
