Now is Slipstream worth seeing? I think so, if you'll actively engage your sympathy with Hopkins' attempt to do something tricky and difficult. If you want to lie back and let the movie come to you, you may be lying there a long time. show more
Writer, director and star Anthony Hopkins releases his inner muse with Slipstream, and guess who shows up - David Lynch! show more
Anthony Hopkins is a wonderful actor, and I have enjoyed his work over the years. I saw that several notable actors were in this project with him and therefore the film MUST be great. Well.....I kept waiting for it to all come together, to be thrilled that I took the time to watch it. Im so sorry, Anthony, I think you should stick with acting! I will still go to see anything you are starring in, just so long as you havent written and directed it.
I love it... I was happy, Nicole carried the whole movie...I will recommend this movie to all my relatives and friends.
Hopkins has never disappointed... therefore must be given the credibility he so richly deserves. This film must be watched through to the final credits. Maybe then, his eager critics would begin to understand... oops, didn't mean to scare... He has given us a glimpse into the totality of modern cinema. Vanity, eccentricity, monetary gain over artistic expression, commercial exploitation.... you get the point (I hope). Hopkins has exposed all, or most of, the foibles associated with the production, direction, and what all the little people, et cetera do to give us Hollywood "blockbusters". Are you threatened? Confused? Bewildered?... Good. If not, take a private moment to look inside yourself. Unconventional?.... Well yeah! That's what makes movie lovers like me (occasionally) Throw in an opinion. I liked this movie. If you don't get that, watch it again. Or, just do your overburdened mind a favor, and just forget it. Speaking for me, "Way to go Tony! I'm hoping for more!" History is made by those who break out of the common mold.
