Rope ★★★★

Hooptober film#31

"Rope" is a film, thats pretty much a play, with seamless, innovative, camera work.

Its Hitchcock's first foray in color, although no blood was shown. But, in the very first scene, a killing is shown. 2 men choking another man with a rope...

But, the real horror, may be, in an idea, that inspired these killers.
Professor Rupert Cadell's(Jimmy Stewart) assertion that "...murder could and should be used as a tool to weed out society's undesirables". One could also consider this idea a variation on the concept of "The Purge"...
