Rope ★★★★★

Hitchcock does it again! An absolutely masterfully constructed film from start to finish. With riveting performances from the whole cast, particularly James Stewart. Rope had me hook, line, and sinker through the entire film and I haven't felt this complete watching a film in ages. My whole body was tense the entire time and when the screen fades to black I felt this sense of fulfillment wash over me. I wanted to see so much more but I know that Hitchcock gave us the perfect amount. An 80 minute ride where Hitchcock strangles us until we're left with barely any air left to breathe.
