Format: DVD
Richard Linklater, director of Slackers & A Scanner Darkly, has adapted Tape from a stage production. Taking place solely in a motel room, the film is shot in real time, focusing on two friends (Ethan Hawke & Robert Sean Leonard) who meet up 10 years after graduation. Hawke is a small time dealer, with `anger' issues, whereas Leonard is a self-righteous filmmaker, whose debut film is premiering in town. Uma Thurman plays the former love interest. One of them is determined to learn the truth about an event from their past, with inevitably leads to their worlds colliding.

Tape is essentially one long conversation, so importantly dialogue is the strongest aspect. The rapid verbal exchanges are entertaining, and have a natural flow. The camerawork however, was shot on digital video film and is quite uncomfortable to watch. Yet it remains an interesting concept, and a faithful screen adaptation.

The beauty of TAPE is that you're never quite sure where it is going, and you're certainly not sure how its central issue will be resolved. A seemingly simple story, it evolves into something of a mystery as key revelations are made and reactions are noted.
Set entirely in a rundown motel room at the ironically named Motor Palace in Lansing, Michigan, the movie opens with 28-year-old buddies, Vince (Hawke) and John (Leonard), making small talk, trying to catch-up on the years since they have seen each other last. Vince is a loser and a literally two-fisted drinker who makes a living dealing drugs. His lack of success might be attributable in part to his consuming his own product since, between double beers, he smokes pot and snorts cocaine. A motor mouth, Vince can't keep his mouth or his body at rest. Like a 6-year-old, he bounces across the beds. He is such an obnoxious guy that it's hard to see why John would have accepted his offer to meet again.
John, on the other hand, is a filmmaker with a potentially bright future. A graduate of the prestigious USC film school, he's in town for a film festival, where his new film is to be shown. Although it would appear that Vince is the one with a disreputable life, he, nevertheless, gets John to talk about a possible sexual incident that happened ten years ago with Amy (Thurman). Vince wants John to tell him all of the sordid details. "Show me the dailies," Vince says, speaking John's language. About all that John wants to confess is that he might have "applied excessive linguistic pressure" on Amy to have sex with him.
The men go around and around arguing with each other until you start to get tired of their circular arguments. The story is ratcheted up a notch when Amy drops by the room to have a prearranged dinner with Vince.

This is a brilliant film. I found myself hanging on the actors' every word to descover what really happened, and there is so much tension and nervous energy in the little room where it all takes place. Brilliant.

Format: DVD
I can't imagine this film - the screenplay, cinematography, and its stage ambience - being to everyone's liking, and I'm sure this will fall into the catagory of a "love it or hate it" movie. What you will not feel, however, is indifferent!

The stripped-back feel of the film allows for a masterfully drafted script to shine through, gripping the viewer from start to finish. One will find that their loyalties to the three characters are subject to change as the plot evolves. This does not, however, detract from the fact that the screenplay manages to arouse in the viewer a range of emotional reactions. At one point I was all consumed by a desire to throw a carefully aimed punch at Vince (Ethan Hawke).... through the TV screen!

All in all, this was for me a great find and comes highly recommended.

Format: DVD
Written by Stephen Belber, this independant movie is thought-provoking and altogether mesmerising.

It is the story of John (Robert Sean Leonard), a film-maker, and his drugged-up friend, Vince (Ethan Hawke). On the eve of the most important day of John's life, Vince shocks him with his surprise guest - Amy (Uma Thurman) - a girl Jon hasn't seen since he slept with her ten years before.

I won't give away the story, but I do recommend it for anyone looking for a good night in, or for those who appreciates independant film-making.

Five stars given for the brilliant performances given by all three actors, particularly Robert Sean Leonard, and the superb writing and directing.

This movie is truly remarkable.
