Rope ★★★½

Hitchcock at his most experimental but the central conceit is as limiting as it is interesting. I love how the camera grows tighter and weirder as the tension builds, and the use of the exterior lighting to add to the mood is an awesome choice. Hitch supposedly views Rope as a failure and I don't agree but I see his concerns. It's difficult to keep the tension ratcheting amidst the constraints but he still manages to pull it off more often than he doesn't. Really dug this.
