The primary story with this movie is that it is shown in four simultaneously filmed ninety-three minute single shot takes (in other words, shown in four quadrants), with the actual plot secondary. The four cameras follow the players involved, with two or more of the four cameras sometimes filming the exact same scene from different angles and thus different perspectives. The audio on each of the four quadrants is turned up and down based on which quadrant(s) the viewer should pay most attention to at any given time. The actual plot, which takes place in Hollywood, involves the pre-production by Red Mullet Productions for the movie "Bitch from Louisiana". The production team is in an executive meeting to discuss several aspects of the movie, including problems with one of their own, Alex Green, who has been missing in action from much of the production and this meeting. Alex's problems stem from his substance abuse and philandering, his wife Emma who is contemplating leaving him, of ...Written by

Timecode was shot with a total of 15, 90+ minute, real-time takes. For the theatrical release the last take was used. Take 1, which runs 93 minutes, has the role of the Executive played by Holly Houston and the role of Emma's Therapist is played by Laurie Metcalf. Take 15, the one used for the theatrical version which runs 97 minutes, has the roles of the Executive taken over by Holly Hunter and the Therapist role is taken over by Glenne Headly. Both takes are included in the US DVD release. See more »
Normally, eating is a simple task. On occasion, one is presented with something different. If I gave my son an artichoke and told him to eat it, I would not presume that he would know how to do so. Lobster presents a similar problem.
In going to a movie, for me, the biggest problem is getting through the previews without succumbing to the urge to leave.
Watching "Time Code" presented an immediate problem. The movie is presented as 4 quadrants on the screen with a fixed camera in each quadrant presenting its history in a continuous, (seemingly) unedited format. What am I supposed to watch? What am I supposed to listen to? My mind actually had to think. It was akin to watching a football game live rather than on TV.
The only hint as to what to watch comes from the increase in sound level associated with a given quadrant.
The end product is in no way overwhelming but extremely interesting. It begs for expansion to things more daring.
