i too remember
14 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The very first time I saw Tony Hpkins was in "The Arcata Promise", which I saw on PBS, I imagine on some dusty,dusky day I dropt LSD and sat down alone and, saddened by my own hopeless relationship with a very lovely girl, who was in process of dumping me at the time. So I was watching, as I recall, my own life on the screen. I do recall she had run away to a place in California called Arcata. So I watched spellbound and cursed,both, in a world of Tony's clearly drunken rages and sudden brilliant introspections, which matched my own to my fancy, perfectly. It was as near a case of synchronous art-meets-life so uncanny I have never forgotten. I was horrified yet could not believe the dialog's's living hell as it rages toward a nihilistic fitting conclusion-so it seemed to me.Hopkins very best work.
