Rope ★★★★

The part where Jimmy Stewart progressively speeds up the metronome while one of the killers plays the piano in order to make him squirm plays double duty in contributing to the ever-building suspense, as it is the point where we start to wonder how much he knows. Anyone who watches that part will immediately know (if they hadn't already known) why people call Alfred Hitchcock the Master of Suspense).
