Audience Reviews for Paper Mask
Feb 12, 2010PAPER MASK (1981) Directed by Christopher Morahan. Written by Dr John Collee (based on his book). Odd, effective & extremely suspenseful thriller, based on a true story about a psychopathic hospital orderly who assumes the identity of a dead young doctor & starts practicing medicine, & becomes a human time bomb in the British public hospital system. A fascinating study of a disturbed personality who will do anything to protect his secret, together with a biting indictment on the 'boys club'/closed shop mentality present amongst doctors who rally around to cover the imposter's mistakes in the misguided belief that they are protecting one of 'their own'. A superior, highly intelligent & credible script & top-notch performances put this among one of the best British offerings of the 90's. *****5 out of 5 stars*****mirabella 1 Super Reviewer
