Rope ★★★½

From an objective standpoint of an aspiring filmmaker like myself (or any filmmaker for that matter), this was very impressive.
By far one of the most interesting ideas/techniques this puts forth is simply the cultural impact it's had on filmmaking (especially in the case of the long take).
So incredibly well-directed, well-shot, well-written. Why am I not praising this film and everything it accomplishes.
Well, that's just the thing. I don't really find this to have accomplished anything by the end of the riveting 80 minutes.
And personally, to me, that is the soul, the core, the meaning behind why each film should be made.

But it's 1948 so what ev's
