Right now I am watching : Rope , by Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock‘s Rope Seems to be in the classic mold . Great atmosphere . Great actors, well played out and clever chat leading to precisely made poignant moments and perfect climaxes. Awesome stuff :

Rope is a 1948 American thriller film based on the play Rope (1929) by Patrick Hamilton and adapted by Hume Cronyn (treatment)[2] and Arthur Laurents, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and produced by Sidney Bernstein and Hitchcock as the first of their Transatlantic Pictures productions. Starring James Stewart, John Dall and Farley Granger, it is the first of Hitchcock’s Technicolor films, and is notable for taking place in real time and being edited so as to appear as a single continuous shot through the use of long takes.
