Rope ★★★★½

Rope's plot and setup may seem simplistic, but I think it's the boldest of Hitchcock's work. It was filmed for the intention of the audience feeling like they were watching a stage play. This was done with the use of continuous shots filmed in only 10 takes, for which it was all brilliantly stitched together. The dialogue is also on the top of my list of favourites, especially with its play on morality. What would have made the film better though is, instead of the constant flickering of a neon sign's "S", it should have been an "H" for "homosexual activity".
