Rope

It's amazing how they build up the Nietzschean philosophy, then... they don't quite destroy it--there's room for a Nietzschean to enjoy and appreciate this, but they certainly denounce the coldest interpretation of it.

It's tense, but in a weird way: I both wanted the characters to be caught and I didn't want them to be caught. A part of me wanted to see them figure a way out, but also, I didn't want to see David's father and girlfriend become so crushed.

And then it worked out in a perfect manner, more perfect than I could have imagined. Not quite as good as Rear Window, but very close.
