Reviews

Written and directed by Anthony Hopkins Slipstream is the implosion of a man's mind. Felix Bonhoeffer is an actor and screenwriter with a habit of getting lost in his own head. While working on a murder mystery screenplay, Felix's caracters start appearking in hi s life and his life starts slipping into his characters. Unaware that his brain is on the edge of implosion Felix is thrown into a vortex where his dreams, time and reality collide.

A number of reviews on this site dismiss this film as unwatchable, messy, and ultimately boring. I would like to point out that whereas this undoubtedly is an experimental work, and people's reactions to it are quite naturally going to be very strong, it is nevertheless clearly not one of those highbrow and pretentious experiments which are of merely technical interest and may as well be ignored by the rest of the world. That is to say, you can actually watch this film if you are not a film student. I like this film (and I'm not a film student), and have shown it to many people. And whereas some of them did dislike it for its chaotic jumble of scenes that makes no attempt whatsoever at telling a story, others liked it in a very straightforward way, as do I.

What we enjoy about this film is not technical brilliance for the sake of technical brilliance - actually, the artistic methods applied here (jump cut, superimposition, coarseness, over-exposition, mix of colour with black and white, ... ) are somewhat on the simplistic side, having already been used in music videos and TV advertising for years by the time this came out. But the overall experience these methods create here is thoroughly enjoyable. It is, in a sense, almost like watching an extremely expensively produced music video, nothing highbrow about it. Then there is the humour. Now this is again a question of taste, but if you have a dark sense of humour (say you find something hilarious in a scene in which the star of a film dies halfway through shooting, and then the producer tells the director in so many words that he doesn't care who's dead and that he is to finish this film no matter what), you'll get a good number of laughs watching this.

This brings me to my final point.

Format: DVD
Sir Anthony Hopkins has produced a film of mind-blowingly pretentious proportions. Slipstream is the venerable thesp's first film behind the camera, and on this evidence I hope it's his last. If it wasn't for Hopkins' undoubtedly impressive acting credentials, this film surely wouldn't have made it past the planning stage; but as it is the movie was first screen at the Sundance Film Festival, giving it kudos that it in no way deserved.
The film doesn't even attempt any coherence but immediately launches into jumpy frames and choppy editing and what presumably is Hopkins' attempt at creating a dreamlike state; resulting in an incoherent and jumbled mess.
The film opens with screenwriter Felix Bonhoeffer (Hopkins), taking in a horse race and a lunch with lady friend Lily (Lana Antonova), before getting stuck in a Los Angeles freeway traffic jam that explodes with an act of severe road rage. It's not clear whether this is Bonhoeffer having a premonition of his own death; but the story jumps back to the lunch and then veers wildly off to rest again outside a bar at night, where we see Bonhoeffer attempting to talk to Gina (Stella Arroyave), before being warned off by giant bouncer Mort (Michael Clarke Duncan). Mort is next seen driving hitman Ray (Christian Slater) into the desert where Ray promptly shoots Mort dead, and enters a diner with his geeky partner (Jeffrey Tambor). Ray proceeds to intimidate the patrons and staff, in a manner reminiscent of similar scenes in Tarantino scripted movies True Romance and Pulp Fiction. This is where the film started to become seriously fractured and I confess to losing interest from hereon in. Suffice to say that the remainder of the movie is a dressed-up tale of Hopkins' ageing screenwriter and his inability to cope with the pressures of his job.

Not my cup of tea at all. Some good elements, notably a superb cast and a good ending. However, I'd have really enjoyed this if we'd had a continuous narrative of Felix's breakdown and real scenes rather than the jerky snapshots, some of which had great ideas of blinking and seeing something subtly different, but for me it just didn't flow enough.

Hey, maybe that's what AH anted, and good luck to him. Some actors direct a truly great feature, like Tommy Lee Jones' "Three Burials", but for me this isn't great at all.

It may be continuing hope that keeps me from scoring this at one star.

Having read the reviews and knew that Anthony Hopkins was involved in this film my expectations were fairly high. I was sadly wrong! The film makes no sense at all. I couldn't follow the story and by the time I'd hit the halfway mark I'd had enough.
Utter rubbish - don't waste your money
