Reaper of Souls


Act 1
Brendan and Philip kill their best friend David. In order to find excitement, Braden also put David's body in a box at home, and then used the box as a dining table; and then held a PARTY, inviting good friends including David's father to participate - David's father I was supposed to borrow a few books.
Braden is bold and confident, Philip is timid and cowardly. Although Philip opposed the proposal, in the end he had to listen to Braden.
The maid came to prepare all kinds of things first, and she also found it strange to use this wooden box as a dining table. Braden and Philip were all prepared.

In the second act,
good friend Rupert came first, and the three chatted casually. Braden told Rupert that he had a better chance with Janet than David. This puzzled Rupert a bit.
Janet came, and she was embarrassed to see Rupert, because the two were in a relationship before, but now Janet and David are together. Janet was also looking for David, and she was a little worried. And Brendan pretends not to know that Janet is with David now - he always likes to play pranks from the top.
David's father and his wife and sister came. David's father couldn't get in touch with David, and his wife and sister were proficient in astrology, and always counted this for that.
Finally came Rupert, an old friend—he had been Braden's teacher and knew him well.
Philip was out of shape because of fear, everyone could see it, but no idea why.

In the second act,
PARTY is getting more and more unhappy. Rupert and Janet aren't happy to know that Brendan is trying to fuck them; Brendan's superior theory makes everyone uncomfortable, especially David's father; Philip because Brendan talks about killing chickens Emotionally out of control; David's father is also told by his wife that David is still missing. David's father bids farewell with a book - Braden's bad habit of tying David's father's book with the rope that killed David. The others followed, including Professor Rupert - but he was clearly suspicious.
Both Braden and Philip were relieved, but Philip was frustrated, thinking that Rupert must have seen something. The two quarreled because of this, and Philip also drank a lot of alcohol.

Suddenly, in the third act
, the phone rang, and it was Professor Rupert. He said he forgot his cigarette case and wanted to come back to get it. Bligh agreed, and Philip grew more flustered.
Brandon kept a pistol in his pocket just in case. Professor Rupert pretended to have found a cigarette case on the cabinet with the dead body, but he stayed in no hurry to go and drink.
Several people began to speculate on how to kill David... Rupert raised his own doubts - from the servant's nagging, Braden told Rupert that he had more chances than David's, and about killing Chicken details, Philip's abnormal performance, etc.
While talking, Philip collapsed, letting the two conspiracy reveal their secrets, and Rupert also found David's body in the box.
Braden was trying to convince Rupert, who had previously subscribed to the theory of superior people. But Rupert objected to Braden.
Rupert shot out the window, hoping to get everyone's attention. Brendan and Philip are both dumb, waiting for the police to arrive...

    Compared with the slightly tasteless value dialectic on the theme, the creative framework of "Secret Room and Long Shot" is the best basis for defining this film: this is a dialectic about form, and it is the display of the film's superiority in an extreme assumption. , is a work that can be used to clarify the boundary between "dramatic image" and "movie". In conventional dialogue scenes and highly confined spaces, the long-shot movement fails to focus on its function as a "real time and space fan", but the movement itself is important enough. It is a tape measure for the distance between characters. It brings an excellent moment of suspense in the human consciousness, and it also freely externalizes the thinking interpretation belonging to the character; at 34 minutes, the only three non-hidden editing will undoubtedly bring the highest light of the film: the power of editing is in the "one". The destruction of "Mirror to the End" reached its extreme value. At that time, the destructive power of editing was completely unified with the tension of performance and text, which announced the birth of a great front and back fight. To sum up, the still moments that are tantamount to "dramatic images" are linked by powerful movements and connected by that flamboyant editing point, and finally become an absolute film that takes place on the stage.

    The ideal form of this story in my mind is to focus more on psychological games rather than simple reasoning. The answer to the mystery has been revealed at the beginning of the film, and the audience's "will it be discovered?" mentality has not been well utilized. Criminal psychology It would have been an interesting point, but Hitchcock didn't care about that. The technique is quite interesting, it requires a strong spatial scheduling ability, and the transition and switching realized by occlusion will not be very blunt.

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.
