A suspenseful film where psychological description trumps reasoning

Natalia 2022-04-20 09:01:34

The acting skills of the three leading actors are really good, especially branden's arrogance and phillip's cowardice and anxiety are vividly performed. Although it felt very interesting at the beginning, it felt that it would be a competition between criminal masters and reasoning masters, but I watched a paragraph. I feel that the script is not very good. Philip's gaffe made the case full of flaws and the case was cracked instead of providing clues through various details on the scene. Could it be a WWII anti-war movie? A script written for the preaching theme of equality of all beings... But in this small space, the movement of the camera, the foreshadowing of the tense atmosphere, and the sometimes detouring and sometimes red-faced and red-lipped dialogues are really wonderful to watch and quite enjoyable. Four stars.

Watched at home the night before leaving for Switzerland

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.
