Review
George Clooney has put his thumb into the directorial pie and pulled out a plum. Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind is based on the fantasy novel of Chuck Barris, TV producer cum CIA assassin, played in the film by the grubbily handsome Sam Rockwell. Clooney deals with the ramblings of a delusional solipsist and adopts a surreal, almost Lynch-like style for the proceedings. This adds to the general feeling of disorientation as the story flits from television studios to Russian detention centres with murder, introspection and a bit of love littering the way. The noir-ish look and the intense, overblown soundtrack keep your interest piqued throughout as well as lots of familiar faces. Oh, and Charlie Kaufman wrote the off-beat screenplay. Busy man.
