'Hide and Seek - in which an actor plays director, in which a child dreams of flight - is a fable of Oedipus under siege (the actor's dream of power corresponding with the child's nightmare of separation from mother).' - Chris Auty, Time Out, Dec 1980
'Hide and Seek is the first film of Shapiro's mature aesthetic - an aesthetic in which the boundary lines between genre, story and discourse, and sound and image, are blurred and extended.'
