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

Terrible cast, terrible characters, terrible movie

I managed to avoid 'Confessions of a Dangerous Mind' until recently. While I enjoy watching occasional re-runs of "The Gong Show" (and think that "Palisades Park" is a fun song), I never knew enough about Chuck Barris (host of the aforementioned game show, writer of the aforementioned song, and supposed CIA assassin) to feel compelled to watch a biopic about his life.

I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago, I was really eager to check it out again. Well, to be honest, I was rather surprised by how much I struggled to get into the damned thing while I was watching it for the 2nd time. Back then, however, this movie seemed to be the birth of a great new director and the first thing I loved about this flick was the story which I found reall... read more

Television made him famous, but his biggest hits happened off screen. "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" is the story of a legendary showman's double life - television producer by day, CIA assassin by night. At the height of his TV career, Chuck Barris was recruited by the CIA and trained to become a covert operative. Or so Barris said.

" Notes: Not so long ago, I saw 'Suburbicon' and even though there was a pretty good buzz about this flick before its release, it turned out to be a flop and I was really amazed about how underwhelming the whole thing was Basically, it was by far the weakest directing effort delivered by George Clooney and his previous directing effort, 'The Monuments Men', was hardly much better. It's just too bad because I actually really loved his directing debut and, back then, it seemed to be the birth of a"
