This is a pure side note, but I love 'Rope.' I think it's a great, underrated film.

Is it underrated? I know Hitchcock hated it and fought to keep his "failed experiment" from being distributed, but I can't think of many critics who don't think highly of it. (And the ones that I can were nit-picking, like the one who said it violated its realist ethos by having the sun set 11 minutes too soon, etc.)

This seems like one of those cases where someone who works in a craft (art, if you think it's good enough) by instinct (and practiced skill, over time) gets caught trying to justify publicly more or less gut-level judgements without spending enough time thinking about them.

I suppose it's the veneer of professionalism, but it just sounded like there was some more sophisticated distinction he was making and that I was failing to understand. One of the drawbacks, I suppose, of giving someone the benefit of the doubt.
