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.

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.

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.

Noir fantasy with the pop funkiness of '70s game shows

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!

...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...
July 29, 2003
Clooney has made a stylish debut, wisely making his movie resemble the wacky game shows Barris dreamt up.

There isn't an emotional connection to the people or actions taking place on screen, and while I was impressed with some of the performances and filmmaking the film as a whole left me cold.
