Trivia

Sir Anthony Hopkins chose a moldy, mildewy storage room at the Redondo Beach Elks Lodge, California 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 soundstage for a television 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 »

One for the minds-eye
22 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

A brilliant work and watch for those fascinated with subconsciousness, dreams, hallucinations. One to see when you're in a suitable mood, preferably alone during the small hours, or at a night-cinema.

  • There's thousands of people who will absorb this experience and appreciate it, but millions who most likely will never even have a clue about it. Ah well, Many guitarists will always be disgusted hearing Jim Hendrix play. Many lover of jazz will suffer heart-attack if they'd have to stay awake on an all-night acid dance-floor. Some are fascinated by abstract paintings while others love the sharpness of a shiny apple on canvas... And thats okay. However, this movie isn't made to interpret from a rational standpoint.


Here's one for the Mindseye...
