THE MIDNIGHT SKY
2020, Netflix, 116 min, USA, Dir: George Clooney

This post-apocalyptic tale follows Augustine (George Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to a mysterious global catastrophe. Clooney directs the adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s acclaimed novel Good Morning, Midnight, co-starring David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler, Demián Bichir and Tiffany Boone.


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.
