Rope ★★★★½

I think every character in this film is ready to fuck each other at any given time. So much sexual tension! Of course Brandon and Phillip have the highest sexual tension. They look like they’re ready to smooch every time they have a conversation. What a wild Subtext for its time. I dig every second of it. 

This is only my second Hitchcock film I’ve seen. Y’all weren’t kidding! His films really hold up and are still so suspenseful. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire 80 minutes. Just knowing that body’s in the book chest from the start, adds such a depth to the film. It makes every moment uneasy. All the acting is phenomenal too. Just endless conversations, that had me smiling or gritting my teeth. 

4 1/2 purges out of 5
