AN "ORPHANED" MOVIE!
28 July 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw "Slave of Dreams" when it was aired on Showtime a few years ago and was quite impressed with not only Sherilyn Fenn's performance, but with the rest of the primary cast also.

I thought the movie was extremely well done, given that it seemed to fall in the "Ancient Egypt" type of historical category. I feel that for that reason, this movie was not viewed by many when it aired. That is quite unfortunate in that the production offered a great deal more than the title and period setting might have indicated.

For this reason, I consider it an "orphaned" movie that most likely will not be shown again, and a movie that is so dismissed that one cannot even purchase it through any of the various movie vendors.

Such a shame, but this sometimes occurs with excellent productions that seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Should it by some strange circumstance be shown again, I certainly recommend it!
