An experimental film that, for the most part, just doesn't work. Alfred Hitchcock rules for trying it, though.

An experiment indeed, but Rope is just too phenomenal though. I love the Technicolor in this film. The lighting with the window as the sun sets and nightfall begins is something to behold. And the final moments of the film with the colorful lights shining in from the letters right outside the window were awesome as well. I find Rope to be one of the most re-watchable films I've ever encountered. I love the dialogue and the interaction between all the actors as a dead body is inside the very thing that food is being served from.

Not one of his greats, to be honest. It is a good film but isn't my type despite it being Hitchcock

A good film definitely, but not one of my absolute favourites from Hitchcock.
