I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I didn't realize what an amazing year this was until I put together this poll.  And I still have yet to see Germany Year Zero and Moonrise.

Is Rope winning because that's one of the only ones people have bothered to see?

Yes, but it's a happy coincidence that it's also a good movie.

Rope is one of four that I've seen. I voted for three (screw you, Fort Apache!).
