4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Taping, 24 July 2009
This review is from: Tape [2001] [DVD] (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.
