Ethan Hawke stars in director Richard Linklater's Tape. Lion's Gate has done a passable job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer (originally shot on digital video). The image looks good sporting bright colors and dark black levels, though some softness creeps into the image along with a tad bit of grain and edge enhancement (due mostly to the limitations of digital video). Overall this is a decent transfer to a very low-budget film. The soundtrack is presented in a serviceable Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo soundtrack in English. Since Tape is a dialogue heavy movie, it's not surprising to find this track to be void of any true directional effects. While the mix isn't very impressive, overall it's free of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. The DVD for Tape features a couple of supplements, including a very informative and droll commentary track by director Linklater and star Hawke, as well as a theatrical trailer for the film.

Tape's innovative and creative filming techniques give the viewer a unique perspective on the different ways that three people can perceive the same event. Who knew so much could be accomplished with three people, a motel room, and a digital camcorder?
