Much celebrated as an actor, Anthony Hopkins is also a filmmaker of interest. Slipstream, his third directorial feature, plays with time and the idea of an actor playing a part. The careening narrative hops, skips, and jumps around a hot-tempered screenwriter who is working on a detective story featuring random acts of violence. Hopkins's propulsive riff on imagination and reality is at once amusing and enchantingly berserk. Slipstream is "about a man who remembers his future" (Hopkins), and at age sixty-nine the filmmaker, wondering what makes time so elusive, presents his viewers with a young and energetic work.
