great old movie

The last time I watched such an old film was the prosecution witness, a classic among the classics. As for Hitchcock, I have always felt very much, and this Reaper of Souls did not disappoint me at all.
I started to know about this film because I watched a musical, Dangerous Game, which is said to be based on Reaper of Souls. It is also a joint crime of two men. One of them claims to be superior and seeks stimulation by committing crimes, feeling that they are superior; the other acts as a follower because of their admiration for each other. Of course, the adaptation of the musical is still outstanding, and the final reversal of suspense is surprising and reasonable.

Speaking of the movie itself, the first scene at the beginning is the crime scene, which is very arresting. Each actor's emotions are in place, one's pursuit of excitement, excitement, and excitement, as well as the other's fear, anxiety, and tension, are all vividly expressed. And the sensitive school supervisor's observation with one look and one expression is also fascinating.
This kind of subject matter, even now, is a very good story. Killing for the sake of excitement, and inviting the victim's relatives and friends to put tablecloths, candles, flowers, food on the box containing the corpse... The final result was a failure, and the murderer was too arrogant.
I really like the school supervisor's lines about self-transformation. He used to think that people are divided into classes, but after seeing the scene of the murder, he realized that every life is equal.
It's a great old movie.

    Shion's suspense is one that shakes off the baggage in the first place, and this super-long short in which the scene never leaves the room is typical.

    When murdering, pay attention to two points: 1. Don't find cowardly accomplices; 2. Don't be arrogant!

Rope quotes

  • Rupert Cadell: Brandon's spoken of you.

    Janet: Did he do me justice?

    Rupert Cadell: Do you deserve justice?

  • Brandon: The good Americans usually die young on the battlefield, don't they? Well, the Davids of this world merely occupy space, which is why he was the perfect victim for the perfect murder. Course he, uh, he was a Harvard undergraduate. That might make it justifiable homicide.
