Boston Globe - Ty Burr
Screenwriter Kaufman is in fine meta-fettle here, even if he's still losing control of his material toward the end, and while it's too soon to tell whether Clooney has the stuff of a great director, he certainly knows who to hire.
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Clooney fashions a style all his own: visceral, vital and churning with off-the-wall ideas. That's what makes you want to see Clooney direct again. You can feel his joy in it.
San Francisco Chronicle - Mick LaSalle
A moody picture that's filled from start to finish with camera tricks, unexpected angles and innovative flourishes.
USA Today - Claudia Puig
May not be a straightforward bio, nor does it offer much in the way of Barris' motivations, but the film is an oddly fascinating depiction of an architect of pop culture.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002)

Television made him famous, but his biggest hits happened off screen. 'Confessions of a Dangerous Mind' is the story of a legendary showman's double life - television producer by day, CIA assassin by night. At the height of his TV career, Chuck Barris was recruited by the CIA and trained to become a covert operative. Or so Barris said.
