The Stunt Man is a preposterously entertaining thriller with a clever narrative and Oscar-worthy (nomination, at least!) Peter O'Toole performance.

The Stunt Man is a brilliant feat of cinematic legerdemain, creating an illusory world in which nothing is what it seems.
Pretentious, overenergized, muddled, intellectually bogus, and very entertaining for it.
The fun lies in the journey. It is a trip of constantly shifting perceptions and sharply etched satirical sketches of movie types. It is also a carnival of bang-up stunt scenes.
O'Toole is excellent in his best, cleanest performance in years.
The result is a movie filled with gags and excellent stunts which remains curiously humourless at heart. Stunted, not stunning.
It's one of the great movies about the movies and a devious exploration of trust in the line between art and life.
The narrative doesn't come to life until Peter O'Toole wraps it around himself like a Renaissance cloak, and stares pensively into the distance.
Lawrence B. Marcus's script, which pits real life against reel life, offers plenty of wit, with most of the bons mots handed to O'Toole.
Meticulously constructed and beautifully realised.
A puzzle-master's delight.
Richard Rush's inventive narrative about the blurred lines between movie reality and factual reality is vastly entertaining, boasting Peter O'Toole in a diabolical, delicious Oscar-nominated performance.
A movie of intrigue but lacking in the craft needed to make it a classic.There are enough twists to keep it entertaining but it is not terribly memorable.
Time after time the camera shows us people in precarious situations here only to pull back to reveal that everything just witnessed was an elaborate gag designed to please the director of a film ... even the ins and outs of personal relationships. Are our own lives so controlled? A paranoid drug-fueled delusion, mindlessly rambling at points, still interesting at points.
An effing masterpiece from beginning to end. There is just no two ways about it. Peter O'Toole was right. "This film wasn't released, it escaped." An amazing piece of cinema and fantastic performances across the board.
O'Toole always makes me feel uncomfortable. Again he is strange and creepy in this role. I thought I'd be more interested in the behind-the-scenes setting of this movie, but this type of film where you don't know what is real or if the main character is imagining some of it isn't my thing.
