I just saw Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Not only is Sam Rockwell absolutely Chuck Barris... but in some bits here and there he's probably the sexiest thing I've ever seen on film.
Besides John Lurie.
I was suprised at what it all ended up being. But I really really enjoyed it.
The cinematography... just the quality of the colors... that was great. And I want the soundtrack.

I'm not feeling particularly eloquent at the moment. Probably has something to do with the long, not good day, the miniscule amount of sleep, and the way that more and more I just want to cut and run.
Oh but I won't.
Never do, ya know.

I watched it in lieu of the SuperButt. I was really happy to see it on the big screen and left the theatre feeling satisfied -- very satisfied. It will most likely be a purchase when it comes out on DVD.

BTW, how does Julia Roberts do that thing with her makeup where it looks like she has the beginning of a tear perpetually hanging from her eye -- I like that.

Re: yep
that's mostly lighting. But they also put a lil bit of white liner on the ridge closet to the eye all the way around. makes doey eyes.

It's weird. I saw it on new year's eve, and no one seemed to have heard of it. Now, I'm seeing full 2-page ads in the new york times, and it's getting noticed. Actually, I'm rather glad.

the only thing that bothered me at all was the little voice in the back of my head saying that chuck had slightly bigger hair during the Gong Show era. I think this just means that I actually watched the Gong Show too much.

I'd heard of it on new year's eve. They've been stumping it since before christmas actually.
Dunno.. maybe we're just a bigger audience for Gong Show stuff. ::shrug::

Yeah, and Chuck Barris also doesn't have that little mole on his cheek where Sam Rockwell does... but some things ya just let go.

Oh, definitely. That's just my hindbrain throwing out stuff. I still saw Rockwell and immediately knew it was perfect casting.

I need to see it again. and read the book.

Haven't seen the movie, but I have read the book. I'm willing to believe that Chuck Barris was a hitman for the CIA, but when he claims that the "luggage rack grandma" urban legend actually happened to him, I call bullshit. Other than that, it's an entertaining read.

because i am the queen of non sequitors
...and because it is my G-d Given Right as a Pregnant Woman (as opposed to being a Pregnant Man, right?), i just wanted to note that "mad world" pretty much took over my car in 1988. i think i was probably suffering from clinical depression at the time (although no one had the opportunity to diagnose me, so it is only a guess on my part), so it pretty much suited me to a T.

i love that song. especially the creepy faux trumpets. i think the mix tape on which "mad world" existed on in my car circa 1988, the song following it was "never let me down again." a perfect duo.

yep. i was depressed, all right.
