Too Serious for a Silly Plot

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I this this movie needed to be a little campier. This is an interesting concept, the movie based on the semi-biographical novel by Chuck Barris, interweaves some of the truth about this odd man, with a spy thriller. It just didn't work for me. The best parts were the slightly campy scenes like with Julia Roberts or the annoying couple he chaperoned in ... read more

I kind of have mixed feeling about whether or not I actually enjoyed watching this film. I can't quite work out if I liked it or not..

I do know that it was very slow starting. In fact I almost didn't end up watching the whole thing. But I think it was when George Clooney came on and the whole CIA thing started that it got a bit more interesting. I mean, a bit more interesting.

It isn’t enough that George Clooney is a tremendous movie star, but with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind he proves that he’s got great skill at this whole writer-director thing. Frequently he takes the film into highly stylized territory, at times the film looks incredibly bleached or overly saturated in its colors, but it always feels like a smart choice from a confident hand. Even as the plo... read more

"Sam Rockwell is spectacular. "When you are young, your potential is infinite. You might do anything, really. You might be Einstein. You might be DiMaggio. Then you get to an age where what you might be gives way to what you have been. You weren't Einstein. You weren't anything. That's a bad moment." "

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

“It isn’t enough that George Clooney is a tremendous movie star, but with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind he proves that he’s got great skill at this whole writer-director thing. Frequently he takes the film into highly stylized territory, at times the film looks incredibly bleached or overly saturated in its colors, but it always feels like a smart choice from a confident hand. Even as the plot goes into increasingly hard-to-believe areas (allegedly based on truth if you believe Chuck Barris), Clooney always keeps things entertaining and appealing to look at.

This is a great hand trick, because the plot is the one thing that’s hardest to swallow in the film. Was Chuck Barris really a CIA operative? Who knows, but Confessions takes his claim at face value. This leads to a f” read more

" I have no idea how I missed out for so long on yet another fantastically deranged performance from the great Sam Rockwell- this is a great companion to the actor's work in Seven Psychopaths. In addition, the movie's a great deal of fun and constantly takes interesting twists and turns."

"Okay, I know that I am probably the only woman in the world that doesn't love Drew Barrymore. But, nevertheless, I cannot stand her. But she didn't spoil this movie for me! I still loved it! George Cloony was...well, George Clooney. I mean that man is amazing. Everything about this film was wonderful. Win for me :) "
