    ★★★★★

    I watched you live, talk, laugh and make noise. I knew I'd like your noise above all others.

    The visuals are gorgeous in every sense. Some of the dialogue reminded me of Before Midnight, and most lines were so poetic.

    ★★★★½

    This time I watched Rope in class and I liked it more than the first time, probably because I was hearing all the reactions my classmates had throughout the film.
    After watching it, we talked about how Rope can be seen as a critique to the ideology that justified the killings during the Second World War—particularly the idea that some people are "inferior", and how this belief made the characters think that they could kill someone without consequences. Rope takes these awful ideas and brings them into one room, where the whole action took place.

    ★★★★½

    This is fun. Sure, some parts are ridiculous, but the film is entertaining despite it's flaws. If you want, you can also see Velvet Buzzsaw as a critique of the art world, and how it (literally) consumes the people that work in it.
