Anthony Hopkins writes, directs, and even composes the soundtrack for his film Slipstream. A stressed writer named Felix Bonhoeffer suddenly finds his world intermingling with the world he has created for a film he is screenwriting.  The premise sounds like it would be similar to the very fantastic Spike Jonze film Adaptation but this is less like Jonze’s film and more like David Lynch’s Lost Highway and Twin Peaks cut and pasted together. The film is a mish mash of odd sequences that jump around so sporadically its nearly impossible to follow, and even when you can follow it you have to ask yourself if what your following is even what you think it is and if it is, is it even that important? If you thought that last line was confusing then just multiply that by a thousand and you’ll have Hopkins’ film.
