Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind

Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind is an odd film. Beginning as the tale of real game show creator, Chuck Barris , it starts to deviate from reality. Or does it?

Although nothing has been (or will be) confirmed in reality, it’s unlikely that Mr Barris was really a CIA trained assassin. But because the question can’t be answered, it reminds me somewhat of Adaptation.

Both films begin to blur the reality that we are faced with in the cinema. “Is what we are seeing real or is it fiction?” is no longer the question. It’s what pieces really happened and which didn’t. With more than a hint of truth in every lie, it’s hard to tell the exact concentration of reality we’re seeing.
