Aging screenwriter Felix Bonhoeffer has lived his life in two states of existence: in reality and his own interior world.

Storyline

An actor and would-be screenwriter, who at the very moment of his meeting with Fate, comes to discover that life is random and fortune is sightless. He is thrown into a vortex where time, dreams, and reality collide in an increasingly whirling slipstream. It's a surreal and dreamlike tale of one man's journey. Written by Gregg Brilliant

Trivia

Anthony Hopkins chose a moldy, mildewy storage room at the Redondo Beach Elks Lodge, CA 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 sound-stage for a TV 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 »

96 minutes trapped in someone else's mind on drugs
1 May 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Anthony Hopkins writes, directs,scores and stars in a movie that is like the bastard child of David Lynch and Peter Greenaway. Its a film that operates on a visceral level and is akin to being trapped in someones head (which is the point). Nominally the tale of screenwriter who is having the real and fantasy worlds of film and his head merge. Beyond that I can say no more- partly because the more adventurous of you may want to try this, and partly because I couldn't explain it if I wanted to. As Hopkins says in the commentary on the DVD about portions of it "I can't explain it either". Characters come and go everything refers to everything else, everyone has multiple parts and the film doesn't end until the film stops. This is food for thought and then some. It means something and it means nothing. From the opening seconds you are bombarded with sounds and images that over lap. There are quick cuts, long takes, things change from shot to shot...and in someways its like a punch in the face. Its a shot of some hallucinogen in the mind of someone else thats forced upon you to further mess you up. Its a mediation on the notion of reality and a puzzle. Its a true masterpiece of cinema and the most pretentious piece of dog doo. I am in awe of it. I have no idea who would want to watch it, but I am in awe of it. It is one of the most personal films I've ever seen. Watching it with the commentary helps to a certain degree.and in other ways it confuses things. What the hell is this and how the hell did it get made. One of a kind. I'm not even sure it goes where Hopkins thinks it goes, yes the trajectory is kind of foreseeable but at the same time...what the hell is this? I feel like I've been messed with in a physical manner, like a truck has hit me. Few films have ever effected me like this. Is it a good film? I have no idea Should you see it? I have no idea Will I see it again? probably. This is an experience. Beyond that you're on you're own.

Rating of 9 out of 10 is for the technical wizardry of the film and because it does what few films do now a days and that is provoke a reaction of some kind in the viewer. The film forces to react in someway either with confusion, laughter or to turn it off. Its is not an indication of what I or you may think of it on any other level.
