Trivia

Anthony Hopkins chose a moldy, mildewy storage room at the Redondo Beach Elks Lodge, CA to film his bedroom dream sequence because he didn't have to dress the walls to look moldy and mildewy. He also used the Lodge Room as a sound-stage for a TV news insert for a later bar scene and filmed the front of the Lodge as an emergency room entrance for his ambulance rush sequence. He signed autographs, posed for pictures, and used one of the Lodge members and his wife in the exterior scene. See more »

A classic "mess with your head" movie.
20 February 2007 | by (bean world, massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Sir Anthony Hopkins writes, directs and stars in a good old-fashioned "warped reality" movie. Hopkins plays a screenwriter who's revising the script of a movie called "Slipstream" as the movie is being shot. Needless to say, the line between fiction and reality swiftly blurs as characters from the movie start appearing in his real life, and we keep reliving the same scenes from different angles. It's nothing we haven't seen before in the works of David Lynch or Dennis Potter, but Hopkins keeps the action from flagging and provides a surprisingly emotional climax. Definitely worth a look if you like this sort of movie, but I don't expect to see it at too many theaters besides the hardcore art-houses.
