The result is a movie filled with gags and excellent stunts which remains curiously humourless at heart. Stunted, not stunning.

An overlong study in pretension.

Mr. Rush keeps the film moving busily, sometimes entertainingly, forward. But he seldom offers his audience enough incentive to puzzle through a wild overabundance of riddles.

The Stunt Man is a brilliant feat of cinematic legerdemain, creating an illusory world in which nothing is what it seems.

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.

Middle fingers aimed directly at the Establishment - both in tainted Tinseltown and the rest of a pre-Reagan America - are rarely as masterful as this brazen bird flip.

The Stunt Man plays astonishing mind games with perception and paranoia; it's a truly original piece of work.
