Beware the gay killers
26 October 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the featurette on the DVD of Rope. It consists of interviews with one of the stars, the two writers and the daughter, as well as clips of the film(it spoils it, of course, in fact, it does so in the first of the 32 and a half minutes of the running time of this). The main subject here is that the movie was really clearly about homosexuality(as the two leads' roles are, and as Stewart's character was at least meant to be... once he was cast, it kind of went away, because, well, he was a boy scout, nearly anything you saw him in... R.I.P.), at the time referred to as "it", since no one could handle that it even existed(and that may be the main reason it bombed), and then various things where Laurent is refreshingly(for a Bouzereau documentary, those usually steer clear of controversy) honest about and critical of Hitchcock(R.I.P.), including his direction and, as he points out, some tension is lost because we know that there's a dead body in the chest, on account of the first thing we see after the opening credits. This is interesting and informational. There is disturbing content and a little violence in it. I recommend this to any fan of Alfred. 7/10
