Trivia

August was one of the very first films to have a video tape made from the rushes negatives instead of the normal rush print. The video tapes were then edited into the finished film. As there was no rush print cutting guide the original negative was cut together using time codes that had been super imposed onto the rushes tape and converted by computer into cutting instructions.

What Hapened, Anthony?
8 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gracious! What a depressing film this was. I love Hopkins. I always have, but why this dark, depressing film that was ridiculously over-acted? I have loved every film Anthony has ever made, but this one, even though I understand a person's struggle with life, friendship, love, and the disappointments of not having true love or a fulfilling life, why should we be subjected to such absurd screaming and desperate actions? The musical score was the only thing I value about this film other than when Anthony's character is CALM. Anthony and I have the same birthday, and so I've always identified with him. He is an accomplished actor and now, as I've learned, a wonderful composer as well, but I just would rather die than to watch this movie again. Sorry, Anthony, I will still love you the rest of my life, but why...oh why did you agree to do this horrible film? Have a great birthday when I do...December 31!!!
