REVIEW:

I walked through these dark corridors of my life, trying to forget my high school days. I tried to leave who I was far behind me, but do they still follow in my footsteps? And all those secrets that I dare not speak of are ghosts thought to be laid to rest, but what if the past were unburied? Would the life that I now live be destroyed, and what would become of me?

The days of high school were long, and it was a dog eat dog world. The strongest survived, and the weak struggled to exist. And the shy ones were left ignored, the comic relief to bullies, and loners drifting along their thoughts and dreams, and then graduation day comes. And the ones that dont change live their lives once again, but this time it would be through their children. But others would evolve into something so much more, shedding away the layers of who they once were.

I made a lot of mistakes in youth, mistakes to never be taken back, but how many times can you say, Im sorry? And if allowed, those regrets would chew me up from the inside, so it was best to just forget. Remove the shards of a shattered life, let time heal open wounds, and move on, but can we really forget what we have done? Or will the past rise up again, spilling our secrets, our actions out across the floor, and destroy the life that we built for ourselves? And will our mistakes once again slice us deep?

It was a pivotal moment in his life, and the last thing on his mind was the past. But as he welcomed his long-time friend, Vince with open arms does Jon Salter walk into a deadly game of truth or dare, and as friendly conversations roll do his words get snared on tape. And the light shed over his past mistake becomes the pendulum swinging over his head, and the hand that rocks it belongs to the one that he trusted.

Tension rises in a shady motel room as truth peels back lies, and taped conversations hold the fate of one man in its hand. And the door to the past swings open, and confrontation steps in. But will the eyes of forgiveness accept the mistakes of the past, or will redemption be denied?

The stakes are high, and the tables have turned. And conversations are razor sharp, and the bonds of friendship are broken. And reunion revives the past, pulling the veil away from a controversial night, and the mind games of one in the search for truth will ultimately change everything and everyone. And the door leading to a chapter of life thought to have been left behind will slam shut.

Dialogue movies captivate us in the heat of conversation, the linguistic pressure of words, and with speech does drama follow, and we are held by the power of voice through movies such as Pump Up The Volume, The Big Kahuna, and Tape. As the storyline walks us into a small motel room, where a high school reunion awaits, does it entrap us in a web of lies and betrayal, and tension burns deep within context. And the actors step eloquently into character, and emotions are held strong. And as the storyline unfolds, conversation struggles to come to grips with the unresolved past, and we watch words cascade together, striking the chords to conflict and intrigue. And all this resulted from a tiny cassette tape that bears witness to a truth that has remained silent for a decade, and the lives of three characters spin round and round the wheels to this cinematic treasure, Tape.
