"I didn't like it. That was a movie in which I was not consulted. I mean, George Clooney changed the script, he didn't talk to me during production. We kind of didn't get along. I was invited to see the movie when he was pretty much done and I wrote a bunch of notes and gave them to him and I guess it was offensive to him."
-- That's writer slash genius Charlie Kaufman on the experience of working with George Clooney (or you know "working with" George Clooney) on Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. I had totally forgotten that was a Kaufman script! (Or you know "a Kaufman script.") Of course I am on Charlie's side, especially given the steady stream of garbage Clooney's since directed, but Confessions is not terrible, and I'm sure it was Clooney's idea to lingeringly photograph Sam Rockwell's bare ass so some good came of it.
