Two young men murder a former classmate in their apartment as a twisted intellectual exercise, then host a dinner party and try to conceal the body and murder in hopes of committing the “perfect crime”. A thrilling and suspenseful picture, staged by a true master of cinema and direction. The story builds and keeps the audience on the edge until the very end. Excellent performances throughout the film.
Arguably one of Hitchcock’s best films, notable for the story (told in real time) and innovative editing. The film appears as one continuous shot throughout, the cuts (largely due to technical constraints from the period) are well hidden from the audience. Must-Watch!
