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

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

"DVD Vaikken George Clooneyn ohjaustyöltä suurempia odottanut, positiivisia yllätyksiä on aina kiva kokea. Käsis onnistuu sekä olemaan viihdyttävää hömppää, että jännittävää agenttipeliä ja amerikkalaisen yhteiskunnan sontaviihteen kulutusta ja lihavimman kansamme muutakin maailmankatsomusta herjataan korrektisti läpi leffan. Siinä samalla pistäydytään Hellsingissä, nähdään Brad Pittiä deittiohjelman hiostuspallilla yms. kivaa. Väliin pistetyt haastattelut tuovat usk"

Still even more favorite quotes, from a film (253 movies items)

"Chuck Barris: I came up with a new game-show idea recently. It's called The Old Game. You got three old guys with loaded guns onstage. They look back at their lives, see who they were, what they accomplished, how close they came to realizing their dreams. The winner is the one who doesn't blow his brains out. He gets a refrigerator."
