CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND
2002, Park Circus/Miramax, 115 min, USA, Dir: George Clooney

At the height of his career as a television game show producer, Chuck Barris (a revelatory Sam Rockwell) finds himself being followed by a suspicious character who recruits him for secretive and dangerous service as a CIA operative. As he basks in the glamour of his two worlds, Barris’ double life soon begins to spiral out of control. Adapted by Charlie Kaufman from the real Chuck Barris’ “unauthorized autobiography,” this bizarre tale gets a unique visual treatment from production designer James Bissell, who employs what might be called a “neo-hallucinogenic” color palette as well as a number of mind-bending pre-CG cinematic techniques.
