Rope ★★★★½

Technically brilliant, tense, tight film revolving around a murder with a purely philosophical motive. With Jimmy Stewart, arguably the most engaging person to speak in front of a camera.

Quite simply what isn't there to absolutely love.

Sometimes appreciating old films is like admiring a spitfire for being ahead of its time and a leap forward in the story of aviation. Seeing a film like Rope is like stumbling across a modern stealth fighter in a photograph taken during the second world war.
