Critic Reviews of "The Right Stuff"Los Angeles TimesDecember 09, 2016
Kaufman has combined the resources and ingenuity of movie making with the freewheeling, damn-the-conventions style of of the New Journalism and come up with a generous, high-spirited look at the bravery and lunacy that was that era.Washington PostDecember 18, 2015
It means something to be a member of the brotherhood whose trials and accomplishments are celebrated so enjoyably in The Right Stuff.TIME MagazineOctober 05, 2011
Moviegoers seeking a grand yet edifying entertainment, right-stuffed with what Kaufman calls "seriousness of subject matter and a wild humor that comes out of left field," now know where to look...VarietyMarch 26, 2009
The Right Stuff is a humdinger. Full of beauty, intelligence and excitement, this big-scale look at the development of the US space program and its pioneering aviators provides a fresh, entertaining look back at the recent past.Time OutJune 24, 2006
From the opening moments it is clear that we have the nearest modern equivalent to a Western: men of quiet virtue going skyward, leaving the tawdry world of log-rolling politicians behind.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
These men remain virtually flawless heroes, almost too good, decent and brave to be true, and it's a measure of how successful the movie is that one is inclined to believe it.Seanax.comApril 10, 2016
The Right Stuff (1983), Philip Kaufman's adaptation of Tom Wolfe's acclaimed portrait of the original NASA astronauts, is *the* American epic of the last great frontier and a genuinely romantic take on the first generation of space cowboys.Film4October 05, 2011
History, melodrama, comedy and satire are skilfully combined in this consistently exciting adventure. Visually and dramatically it rarely sags, there's a vivid array of characters and though it's a film with issues, these never eclipse the human drama.Antagony & EcstasyMarch 01, 2011
One of the scattered handful of truly great American movies in the first half of the 1980s.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Educational, exciting action, great acting.EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 14, 2008
Though critically acclaimed, Philip Kaufman's superbly realized adventure about the early Space Age was a commercial flop, due to its satirical tone and unfortunately close association with the presidential candidacy of John Glenn.
