    Rope 1948

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 07 Apr, 2012

    A superlative film. Set in one apartment, with only four cuts (?), Hitchcock offers a master class in filmmaking.

    I ain't 'fraid of no ghost. All supernatural comedies should aspire to reach this level.

    Unnerving and absorbing, Rebecca was a worthy Oscar winner.
