by Steven Lisberger starring Bill Paxton and Mark Hamill. It's directed by the same hack who brought us Tron which, although very pretty, was bad science and worse fiction. Given Tron's eventual popularity, you'd think it would have launched Mister Lisberger's film-making career. It didn't. In a Hollywood career that spans three decades, Mister Lisberger has only ever made four films, the fourth and final nail in his coffin I present for you tonight. I'm talking about Slipstream, a post-apocalyptic science fiction film which has a remarkable cast featuring Mark Hamill, Bob Peck, Bill Paxton, Robbie Coltrane, the gorgeous Kitty Aldridge and even Oscar winners Ben Kingsley and F. Murray Abraham in small roles. Yet Slipstream is virtually a forgotten film. How can such a recent, well-financed film, featuring a significant cast, just fall off the face of the cinematic earth?
Stars: Nigel Honeybone, Mark Spain, Nikki Vukas.
