215. Tape (2001)
-Since when are you all high and mighty?
-I'm not high and mighty. I'm too high to be high and mighty.
Richard Linklater (have I mentioned that he's my favorite director) directs Ethan Hawke (have I mentioned that he's my favorite actor), Uma Thurman, and Robert Sean Leonard in a movie based on a one act play that takes place in real time entirely in a cheap motel room. Sometimes movies work best when you completely strip them of all the superficial excess and let actors act out a moving story.
