Imagine that: Charlie Kaufman has written another bizarre movie that twists and turns through the real world, utter fiction, and the pseudo-reality of celebrity and popular culture. Kaufman wrote 1999’s off-its-hinges "Being John Malkovich" as well as the mostly brilliant "Adaptation" from a few months ago. Now he and first-time director George Clooney bring game show impresario Chuck Barris’ infamous "unauthorized autobiography" "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" to the silver screen as a darkly comic exposé, and the result is one weird, wild rollercoaster ride of a film (***1/2 out of four).
