Dick Clark, Dating Game host Jim Lange, frequent Gong Show panelist Jaye P. He had the perfect cover: TV producer by day, CIA operative by night. It's anybody's guess in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, a sharp adaptation of the unusual memoir of Chuck Barris, creator of The Newlywed Game, The Dating Game, and The Gong Show (which he also hosted).

The story covers the life of the TV iconoclast in his own words, from his 1940s childhood through his Hollywood success and subsequent downfall.

Sam Rockwell stars as Barris and has the man down to a tee, from physical appearance to goofy persona.

In his directing debut, George Clooney offers a stylized yet light touch, keeping the showy theatrics to a minimum and relying more on the natural quirkiness of the narrative, which is scripted with eccentric glee by Charlie Kaufman.
