Editors Note
Note An escaped convict accidentally destroys a stunt shot while a movie is being filmed. When the driver dies in the subsequent car crash, the director of the film decides to quickly replace the driver with the convict, thus saving them both from the police and setting up explosive dramatic ironies between the real world and the illusory world of film-making. O'Toole is brilliant in this brilliant film. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best Director, Best Actor--Peter O'Toole, Best (Adapted) Screenplay.
Plot Summary
Summary On the run from cops, Cameron finds refuge with Eli Cross, a psychotic film director. Eli takes advantage of the fugitive's desperation by using as a stunt man in extremely dangerous scenes. Excited by his new profession and its financial rewards, Cameron makes the production his home. He falls for the picture's female star but soon suspects that she is involved with Eli. Eventually Cameron starts to believe that Eli is out to kill him for the sake of a once in a lifetime stunt.
New York Times "The gamesmanship of THE STUNT MAN is fast and furious....[O'Toole delivers lines] magnificently..." 10/17/1980 p.C6
USA Today "Director Richard Rush's unique moviemaking saga is one of the consummate screen treats of its day..." 11/23/2001 p.8E
Entertainment Weekly "...Director Richard Rush's reissued cult fave is both a paranoia film and a Hollywood satire, each element reinforcing the other in an antic show of gamesmanship..." 11/16/2001 p.154
Sight and Sound "...Occasionally inspired....Distinctive..." 04/03/2003 p.61
Wall Street Journal "[A] sensationally original film....The structure is trompe l'oeil -- what's reality, what's illusion -- and the dominant mood is paranoia..." 06/10/2011
