Though it's not one of Hitchcock's more well-known films, Rope might be his most unique work. The entire thriller is shot as if it's a single take. The only cuts are those on the corpse, which is hidden at a party. There's a murder most foul, committed with the titular rope. It's up to Jimmy Stewart to unravel this slipknot of a mystery.
