Brief Synopsis: "Based on a three-character, one-act play, Tape is set entirely in Room 19 of a seedy motel in Lansing, Michigan rented by Vince, a ill-tempered, outgoing party animal/drug dealer who's visited by his old high school friend Jon, a documentary filmmaker, where they pass the time reminiscing about the good old times which take a turn when Vince records their conversation."

J Bumgardner70 - Two guys re-unite in a hotel room 10 years after high school and discuss their recollection of certain events. Eventually a girl they both had a history with is inserted into the mix with quite a bit of drama unfolding. The entire movie takes place in the hotel room with those three actors. Worth a watch if you're ok with extremely dialogue-driven movies.
