The film does not offer any explanations. Instead, it intrigues more.

Though the real-life Barris has yet to confirm or deny his double life as detailed in his autobiography of the same name, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is an fascinating tale about an even more fascinating guy.

Well-acted and well-written, for mature teens+.
October 18, 2008
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.

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.

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.

Clooney directs it! How could it be any good?

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!
September 2, 2003
...a one-note character study about an unhappy, insecure, delusional paranoiac, whose assassin gimmick wears thin almost before it gets started.

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...
