#AlfredHitchcock 's 1948 film Rope is a landmark in cinema history, known as the first and only time an entire film was shot in one continuous take. A camera operator's foot was broken by a heavy dolly during one intensive take, and he was gagged and hauled out of the studio so that filming could continue without interruption. Hitchcock selected as his first property to produce an adaptation of #PatrickHamilton 's play Rope (1929), inspired by the infamous #LeopoldandLoeb murders. He introduces the audience to two killers—upper-class rogues from Ivy League colleges who, for the challenge of it, have constructed what they believe will be the perfect murder. #ArthurLaurents (screenwriter) wrote in his memoir: "The three main characters are homosexual. Brandon ( #JohnDall ) and Phillip ( #FarleyGranger ) are lovers who carry the Nietzschean philosophy learned from their former prep school teacher, Rupert ( #JamesStewart ), to its outer limit: a murder committed to prove superiority. Rupert is a good friend and probably an ex-lover of Brandon’s; his is the most interesting role. Caustic with a sardonic sense of humor, overly cynical, he is caught off guard by having to face the appalling result of what he taught and professed to believe." Granger was also known to be in a relationship with Laurents: "It tickled him [Hitchcock] that we were lovers; that we had a secret he knew; that I knew he knew - the permutations were endless, all titillating to him, not out of malice or a feeling of power but because they added a slightly kinky touch and kink was a quality devoutly to be desired."
The public were less than enthusiastic. Yet while Rope, isn't necessarily perfect, it's still engrossing, blackly comic and boldly constructed.
Ser o no ser, ésa es la cuestión” es la frase más famosa de las obras de Shakespeare. Es la frase introductoria del soliloquio de Hamlet y se encuentra en la escena 1 del acto 3 de la obra de teatro Hamlet, el príncipe de Dinamarca.
Explicación de la frase
Hamlet queda devastado con la muerte de su padre el rey de Dinamarca. El famoso monólogo de Hamlet se sitúa en este contexto existencial sobre la vida y la muerte.
"Ser o no ser, ésa es la cuestión" introduce la lucha entre la vida y la muerte que Hamlet libra dentro de sí mismo. Se pregunta si es más noble aceptar los caminos del destino y de la fortuna o dar fin a la vida y así también a los sufrimientos que conlleva.
Hamlet continúa insinuando cómo la muerte es deseable porque es como dormir. Y cuando duermes es inevitable soñar. Y cuando sueñas es inevitable pensar en la vida lo que nos hacer ir en círculos y tomar una pausa en la acción de matarse. Ahí reside la existencia del infortunio.
La segunda parte del monólogo, Hamlet llega a la conclusión que la única razón por la cual soportamos una lista de horrores y sufrimientos en la vida es la conciencia de algo después de la muerte que desconocemos y frente a lo desconocido nos volvemos unos cobardes.
Hamlet concluye en su soliloquio de "ser o no ser" que el pensar sobre esa conciencia de la vida después de la muerte nos deja en la inacción. Por lo tanto Hamlet resume que debe dejar de pensar para actuar (vengar la muerte de su padre). Y pide a su ninfa que le perdone todos sus pecados.
