Rope vs. Vertigo



on 10/25/2012

Two films in which Alfred Hitchcock successfully brought out James Stewart's darker side. While I believe Vertigo's reputation has been overinflated (it is very much NOT the greatest movie ever made), it is a decent enough movie that has never failed to hold my attention. The same, however, can't be said about the tedious Rope. Vertigo wins.

Vertigo is deserving of every ounce of praise that it's getting. I'm glad the critics have finally began to get it right. Rope is underrated in my opinion. But still, it's not better than Vertigo.

Don't love either. Vertigo wins.

Vertigo is way better. Rope is cool too.

Two greats from Hitchcock. I know I'm probably alone, but I prefer Rope. That movie is intense as FUCK!

Agreeing with Nononsense. I feel like that I'm with the critics. Vertigo was misunderstood and overlooked at the time of its release and glad that the film is finally praised. That said, I must also agree with Caesar in saying it is far frm the greatest film of all time. In fact there are three Hitchcock films that clearly surpass Vertigo (Rear Window, Psycho, North by Northwest) but it is nevertheless, a top 50 film for me. Rope is awesome, underrated and intense but Vertigo wins.

I love "Rope", but "Vertigo" wins considering it's my favourite Hitchcock film!

Vertigo is better.

Vertigo is Hitchcock's best film, so I'm obviously going with Rope. Nah.

Rope is worst Hitch and worst Jimmy.

I would have to disagree. Rope blew me away, in a way that Vertigo didn't.

Neither blew me away, but actually Rope was fine. It probably don't provide massive entertainment, but it's entertaining. And short. I'm not really into Vertigo.
