Rob F (br) wrote: Possibly the ultimate drive-in movie: Raquel... catfights on rollerskates... fightin'... cussin'... bad one-liners... a cool-as-stone covert villain... even a catterwallin' redneck who gets his heart broken... this film HAS IT ALL. It even belongs to the 70's when even the sucky movies had a sense of diamond-in-the-rough watchability. A great home-video double feature: This movie and "All The Marbles."

Blake P (fr) wrote: Would you believe that Chuck Barris, the inventor of TV trash ("The Gong Show", "The Newlywed Game"), pulled a Hannah Montana and also worked for the CIA? I didn't, and still don't. "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" doesn't feel like a biographical film, maybe because it's pretty artsy or maybe because we simply cannot believe what we're seeing. Barris, in his memoir of the same name, claims that he killed over 33 people for the Central Intelligence Agency. Many, of whom, became victims while he acted as a chaperone during his contestants' vacation prizes. It's a strange declaration coming from an eccentric man, and you assume that "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" will have the smart zaniness of "Being John Malkovich" (which was also written by Charlie Kaufman.) But George Clooney, who makes his directional debut here, reportedly wanted Kaufman's script to be "without corruption or softening," which, in this case, is a bad move. Barris was apparently very involved during production of the film, adamant about making sure his story was told in the most truthful way. In most cases, having the real deals running laps behind the scenes can be a good thing, but "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" is a film that screams to be wacky - yet it instead goes on a downhill ride of increasing glumness that nearly kills all the fun. The film opens in 1981. Chuck Barris (Sam Rockwell) is holed up in a messy hotel room in the bad part of town, unshaven, clearly post-mental breakdown, and slightly agoraphobic. A woman knocks on the door begging for him to come out. He doesn't, making us wonder - what the heck happened here? Then, the film flashes back to the early '60s, before Barris was blamed for beginning the rise of TV garbage, brewing ideas for potential television shows while trying to stay on the rise. But right as Barris finally gets a deal on ABC, he is approached by Jim Byrd (George Clooney), a CIA agent who has been profiling Barris for months in hopes to recruit him as a covert operative. Barris agrees, intrigued by the lifestyle of a spy - but when he finds that Byrd is much shadier than he appears, murder goes from stylish to horrendous in seconds. As his career declines (both the public and critics tire of his low-class shows), so does his grip on reality. With a plot like this one, "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" sounds like a black comedy. A TV host who moonlights as an assassin? Perfect. But the film never seems to understand what tone it's going for. There are times where the film is light-hearted, rippling with energy and alive in its conversations, while others are so somber that the quirky mood is smothered to death. There are three kinds of scenes - ones that are spirited and funny (Barris and Penny's first-meeting, an unconventional meet-cute that is executed flawlessly), ones that have the dark mystery of a James Bond film (Patricia and Barris' introduction to each other is covered in shadows and quite tense), and ones that are so shrouded in sadness that we can hardly bare it (the entire final half). Each individual scene is masterfully shot, but they come together with the same kind of force a toddler puts on a puzzle piece that just won't fit. The cast is excellent, and Clooney has enviable chops when it comes to directing, but "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" has a personality disorder that can't seem to make up its dangerous, dangerous mind.
James W (br) wrote: It's good that Taylor Kitsch seemed to know what was going on because I didn't have a clue. Also his jumping ability just gets silly and beyond plausible, even for a film like this. There's some amusing parts but john Carter is underwhelming. Also it was very odd when in one part he's waist deep in corpses of green guys he's killed and then he's on the same side as them, really? No one minded how many of their own he butchered? The dog creature is nice, and there's a slight twist at the end which is somewhat surprising.
