Here is my Hitchcock viewing program, for anyone who is interested
Alrighty, I've gotten my #LPTop100 all combed out. Pruned and ranked
I've also created a list for honorable mentions, films I really like but didn't make the cut:
Of course, this may change in the future as I recall other essential films.
Hi, guys (and girls?). I'm a screenwriter, so by default I'm a film lover. I'm the type who can watch The Turin Horse and Robocop in the same night. Although, a night like that is usually spent by myself now, since I moved to Greece. I used to live in NY, if there are any NYers in the group? Or any Greeks?
Anyway, looking forward to partying with y'all.
Well, I ended up really liking it this time around. It was a little on the nose at times. But, I liked what he did with this one. And I particularly enjoy single-location stories that work now. I think before I felt it to be a little claustrophobic. The psychological tie-ins were delightful as well.

Ok, this whole story (started as a stage play) is based on Nietzsche's Ubermensch (another psychology reference by Hitch).
Jimmy Stewart invents The Purge cracking wise at a dinner party! Only he suggests it lasts a week!
Christ, they're all doing it! Hitch, man, you should know better! You drink tea out of a mug, too??
..and yes, there is an actual rope. It's not just a metaphor. This is the rope.
Ok, sure, they committed a senseless murder for shits and giggles. But.. now they're drinking champagne out of martini glasses.... THE MONSTERS!!!
I've actually seen this a few times already (and wasn't the biggest fan). But I'm interested to see how the 14 Hitchcock films I've seen so far will color my opinion of it.
Now Playing: Hitchcock's Rope (1948) starring Jimmy Stewart and John Dall
Einstein crosses and gravitational lensing in general.. Soo farking cool!
Physicists Used Einstein’s Relativity To Successfully Predict A Supernova Explosion
