Well-acted and well-written, for mature teens+.
| Original Score: 4/5
An intriguing, bizarre and challenging film that invites us into a world filled with larger-than-life characters and strange occurrences.
Fact and possible fiction amble to a photo finish as one of pop culture's nuttiest milestones.
| Original Score: 3/5
Clooney wanted Kaufman's script delivered without corruption or softening. He has overcorrected and made a glum, almost listless movie.
Directing a movie is no picnic, but I'll be damned if Mr. Clooney doesn't make it seem like fun.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Brimming with slightly self-conscious directorial panache, the movie zips between nearly three decades, fantasy and reality without ever really deciding how seriously it wants to take itself.
A terrific actor, a handsome movie star and now an accomplished director--damn you, Mr. Clooney, for making it that much more unfair for the average joe likes of myself.
Clooney directs it! How could it be any good?
| Original Score: 1/10
Noir fantasy with the pop funkiness of '70s game shows
| Original Score: 3/4
Un prodigio narrativo muy diferente a todo lo que suele producir Hollywood, pero no por capricho de un director sino al servicio de una historia y de un punto de vista.
Bounces around like the smarter and weirder older brother of Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can.
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is freakin' brilliant. Sam Rockwell gives a whack-you-upside-the-head dose of his talent!
| Original Score: 4/4
...a one-note character study about an unhappy, insecure, delusional paranoiac, whose assassin gimmick wears thin almost before it gets started.
| Original Score: 5/10
Because of movies like this, nostalgia just ain't what it used to be.
Directing for the first time, Clooney turns out to be a natural when it comes to parody...
Clooney has made a stylish debut, wisely making his movie resemble the wacky game shows Barris dreamt up.
Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind is the latest, and most promising evolution of Clooney's career. . .
Os universos de Chuck Barris e Charlie Kaufman são complementares. E igualmente fascinantes.
Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind may not be in the Citizen Kane class, but George Clooney's first foray behind the camera does boast similarly bravura technique and an infectious sense of joy in the filmmaking process.
The movie feels like it's going to be great, and it carries on feeling that way for a long time, but takeoff just never happens.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
