2009 - Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
I love this film, and welcome any chance to revisit it. It's funny, a conversation about this film has come up a few times over the last week or so so I really wanted to check it out. Also, anything Kaufman related is worth spending time in. I love any kind of film that has an element of mystery to it with an unreliable narrator, and this is one of the tops. For those who don't know it's a bio pic about Chuck Barris who was a television game show producer who wrote an autobiography about having been an assassin for the CIA - in reality no one knows if it's true or not, and this film is an adaptation of that book. It's so fucking good. Sam Rockwell is one of my favorite actors, and he's surrounded by pure talent in this film. If you haven't ever seen this it's a shame and should be rectified. I love it so hard.
