Previous to viewing, I was unaware that this film was based on an autobiographical piece. This is not presented in a typical biopic fashion. It starts as a comedy with some nice offbeat humor, then progresses into a weird espionage tale, and finally into a pseudo-psychological examination. I like the aspects that are much different from the norm, but not everything meshed well to me. Clooney's striking direction and Rocwell's entertaining performance are the glue that hold this film together. Interesting character study.

"Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind" by Yojimbo

I imagine Chuck Barris sat down to write his autobiography and realised that it would be the same as 99% of every other autobiographies ever written. Really f***ing boring. So he decided to throw in some stuff about spies and assassins to spice it up a bit. This adaptation therefore is part biography, part romance, part thriller and part comedy but is a serious case of jack of all trades and master of none. The spy scenes come across as a kind of unfunny version of Austin Powers, the romance doesn't work because he is such an unsympathetic twat (even Drew Barrymore comes across as whiny and annoying) and it just isn't very funny. It's a shame because if Clooney had concentrated on just one aspect it could've been much better; the scenes involving himself and Rutger Hauer are great. Unfort...
