Confessions of a Dangerous Mind   April 24th, 2010

Originally Written 10/07/03

I saw Confessions of a Dangerous Mind tonight, the surreal bio-pic based on Chuck Baris’ auto-biography. The story was damn near impossible to believe, but that’s beyond the point, true or not it made for an interesting tale.

I liked the juxtaposition of smaltzy, TV kitsch and the gritty underworld of the CIA. Chuck’s character was both amusing and tragic, and creepy too. I also appreciated the slightly non-linear narrative and surreal imagery of it. If you like offbeat films, it’s worth checking out as a rental.
