Confessions of a Dangerous Mind


Anybody who believes that Chuck Barris, creator of “The Gong Show” and other television brain rot (that look positively tame compared to the unthinkable pustulent atrocities currently being broadcast as “reality television”) actually worked as a hit man for the CIA is probably dumb enough to vote for George Bush again. I personally think Barris never intended that anybody would really believe him. But if you allow that one wacky assumption, this is a cracking good movie, well-written by the insane Charlie Kaufman (see Adaptation) and directed by George Clooney, with good acting by everyone involved.
