AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Tape's palpable energy and honorable intentions are often undermined by uneven filmmaking, but it remains an intriguing, rage-fueled rallying cry.

Movie Info

Based on true events, TAPE, follows Rosa (Annarosa Mudd), an actress who secretly places hidden cameras on her body as well as in a dark studio. Rosa begins to stalk and film Pearl (Isabelle Furhman), who she identifies as the next "protege" of a successful producer, Lux (Tarek Bishara). Rosa's camera has difficulty finding focus as she attempts to shift her vision from the male gaze to the female experience. But as Pearl and Lux enter the targeted studio, and Rosa collects and edits footage, she, and we, must all sit through an endless day of Lux's screen test process, and the grey areas of pressure that women experience when being coerced by a powerful man. As Rosa peers into her own past experiences playing out before her eyes she is forced to question if her revenge-fueled goal of revealing what goes on behind these closed doors is worth what it takes to achieve it.

It becomes heavy and clumsy, and I was brokenhearted about it because there's a bleeding, raw anger to this film.

"Tape" will inspire conversations - its woefully conceived final sequence literally begs for them - but perhaps not the ones Kampmeier anticipated when crafting a film that, for all its missteps, is built on necessary storytelling.

While "Tape" is admirable in its aims to frankly explore what happens behind closed doors, it's less laudable in its execution.

Tape isn't just a movie. It is a rallying cry.

March 26, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Even as the film feels up-to-the-minute, it's been made with a certain threadbare, streets-of-New-York punk feminist mythologizing that may remind you, at times, of the films of Beth B.

"Tape," in short, is a terrible movie about appalling behavior.
