Rope Blu-ray Disc - 2013

Arthur Laurent's said the suspense was lost when we see the murder and know they're gonna get caught, (crime never pays in Hitchcock films) but i disagree. As a master of suspense He knew that the tension would be maintained for the only other witnesses, the audience ,knowing where the body was hidden, Though Stewart was not easily accepted in this role and some felt he was uncomfortable in it (he was fine imo) the memorable performances are from the brits and the actress who plays the maid. Also fun to watch the sky grow darker while every ten minutes a cover for the camera reload as it was all shot in 10 minute increments like a play.
