THE STUNT MAN

United States | 1980 | Richard Rush

THE STUNT MAN

A fugitive (Steve Railsback) stumbles upon an action movie set and replaces a stunt man who has died. He uses the film shoot to hide from the police, but soon discovers that there’s no hiding from the movie’s imperious, eccentric director (Peter O’Toole in the sixth of his eight Oscar-nominated roles), who may be trying to kill him. Reality and illusion blur in this witty, head-spinning cult classic that Pauline Kael called “a virtuoso piece of kinetic moviemaking” and “slapstick metaphysics.” With Barbara Hershey and Allen Goorwitz/Garfield. Blu-ray. 129 min.
