Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "Confessions takes the view that Barris was a flyweight sociopath who could create tawdry hit game shows and kill in the next breath because he lacked an allegiance to decency. That's a glib, amusing, ultimately rather meaningless idea, but the film flogs it with such poker-faced conviction that, for the two hours you're sitting there, it's surprising fun to consider. Then the lights go up, and you realize that, like Barris' TV shows, what you've been watching isn't reality at all but, rather, an irresistible sham.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "
Based on Barris' 'unauthorized autobiography,' one can safely assume that the movie, like its written inspiration, exaggerates. Or, as the saying goes: Never let the facts stand in the way of a good story. Of course, it would help if this really was a good story, rather than a mediocre one. But there's nothing terribly witty, clever, satirical, or irreverent about Charlie Kauffman's screenplay.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Good "That Clooney would direct it so well is a little surprising, and is part of that re-education by which we stop thinking of Clooney as a TV hunk and realize he is smart and curious. His first movie is not only intriguing as a story but great to look at, a marriage of bright pop images from the 1960s and 1970s and dark, cold spyscapes that seem to have wandered in from John le Carre.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "First-time director Clooney confidently employs a dizzying combination of film stocks, overlapping images and editing styles to tell the fractured fairy tale of Barris's life; the freewheeling mix of sunny nostalgia for the boomerang coffee-table era and sleazy fascination...''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Wow, I haven't seen opinions this mixed in a long time. About half enjoyed it and half didn't. Quite a few even hated it. So, since there were a small percent who truly enjoyed it and a large percent who didn't enjoy it or hated it, I would say your probability of enjoying this movie are pretty low.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
This is a hard one to predict because it's not a bad movie but it's certainly different. I would say the average moviegoer isn't going to care much for this movie, which is fine because it's obvious this movie wasn't made for the average moviegoer. If you're the type who enjoys quirky art house movies and don't mind the strong content then you will almost certainly enjoy this unusual story. It's also fun to see the many cameos of very big stars.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Young, energetic, and focused on a top career in the growing television industry, Chuck Barris finds himself being followed by a suspicious character who quickly lures him into a secretive and dangerous world: that of a CIA operative. While Barris gains notoriety as a dynamic television producer – creating such innovative and popular game shows as "The Newlywed Game” and the self-hosted "The Gong Show” – he regularly executes assassinations for the United States government. As ratings rise, Barris incorporates his shows into his secret life: winning couples on "The Dating Game” find themselves shipped off to "fabulous Helsinki” and "romantic West Berlin” for their dream dates – it isn't Paris, but it provides chaperone Barris a cover for his covert missions.

As Barris basks in the glamour of his two worlds - entertainment and espionage - his life begins to spiral out of control. He is torn between the woman who loves him and the mysterious woman of his fantasies. He receives mass criticism from the public who accuses him of contaminating the airwaves… and he finds himself marked for death by a traitor operative.

Barris must regain control of his life. Both of them.
