Timecode

Overview

This innovative DVD release of Timecode mirrors the creative nature of this unique film.

Overview

This innovative DVD release of Timecode mirrors the creative nature of this unique film. It contains two versions of the movie: the original theatrical release (version 15) and the first complete take of the film (version one). These two variations are extremely different from each other, with adjusted story lines and performances. Director Mike Figgis does a feature-length commentary for each one, and both contain plenty of compelling insight. A highlight of this disc is the option of becoming the editor and controlling the sound levels in each square of the frame. The more compelling characters can be focused on, providing for repeated but different viewings. This DVD also includes a 19-minute video diary from Figgis that differs from the usual promotional featurettes, instead offering plenty of background information on his ideas and approach to the film. Also included are several nice DVD-ROM features, including Figgis' shooting score and links to the official web site. Timecode is presented in a full-frame 1.33:1 transfer to offer viewers easier access to each square. Even with this modification, watching this film on a small television will be difficult. This transfer looks excellent, especially for material shot on digital cameras. The 5.1 channel Dolby Digital audio track does a remarkable job of separating the sounds that spring from each portion of the frame. Unfortunately, version one only comes in a Dolby Surround 2.0 transfer.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
An audacious experiment in real-time storytelling conducted by innovative director Mike Figgis Leaving Las Vegas, Timecode utilizes a talented ensemble cast in its full-scale assault on the conventions of cinematic narrative. The 97-minute story, shot with digital video cameras, consists of four sequences -- concurrently filmed without any breaks -- displayed on screen as equal quadrants. Nearly two-dozen principal players interact during the hour and a half, which unfolds in and around Hollywood. Aspiring bisexual actress Salma Hayek is having an affair with studio executive Stellan Skarsgaard; her jealous lesbian lover, businesswoman Jeanne Tripplehorn, suspects that something's up and determines to take action. Saffron Burrows appears as Skarsgaard's devastated wife, and Holly Hunter, Kyle MacLachlan, Steven Weber, Glenne Headly, Julian Sands, and Leslie Mann show up variously as actors, directors, and executives. Impeccably directed around improvised dialogue, Timecode is basically a soap opera, but one that's dazzling in its technical virtuosity.
All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
Almost by default, Mike Figgis' audacious experiment with the powers of digital video is one of the director's better efforts. The design of the film -- four continuous takes, onscreen at once -- virtually guarantees that something interesting will be happening at least 25% of the time. At its best, there's too much to absorb in one sitting. Figgis' choice of improvisers, however, proves to be a mixed bag. Stellan Skarsgård and Holly Hunter shine in scenes which require them to be honest, sardonic, and even tragic; Julian Sands and Salma Hayek, meanwhile, show a heretofore unseen comic side. On the other hand, femme fatales Jeanne Tripplehorn and Saffron Burrows essentially twiddle their thumbs for much of the film and overact when they get the opportunity to say or do anything. For all its claims of "invention," Timecode is actually conventionally engrossing: with its simplistic plot -- involving infidelity and insensitivity at a slick Hollywood production company -- the overall result is like watching a juicy soap opera through four grainy surveillance cameras.
