This review is from: Rope [DVD] (DVD)I have a feeling that this Hitchcock is an underated movie. Harly anyone seems to know of it when I mention it but I haven't stopped talking about its brilliance all week! It is an amazing film, filmed in one room, based on a play (which is very obvious because the actors perform in a specific way that would only be linked to a play i.e. standing so that they are all facing the front with no backs facing the audience) which is of course based on the Leopold-Loeb case of 1920's America. James Stewart is as usual comical and quick- thinking, with John Dall and Farley Granger as the two murderous men, who decide to commit the perfect crime by murdering their friend and putting him inside a chest in their front room, then inviting all his friends and family round for tea. Things are going fine but then James Stewart begins to get suspicious... One word - Classic!

Great Film.....but just read the true story of the Leopold-Loeb case and I want to be sick!!!!
Two monstrous,arrogant young "men" aged 18 & 19 at the time who killed a child for their "intellectual amusement".....one got his comeuppance in prison and one lived to be 66!!!!
Hope they got their just desserts in the next life for what they did to that lad!!!!!
