Some things are better left top secret.
Television made him famous, but his biggest hits happened off screen. Television producer by day, CIA assassin by night, Chuck Barris was recruited by the CIA at the height of his TV career and trained to become a covert operative. Or so Barris said.

The opening 20 minutes are little confusing, perhaps intentionally so given the nature of the plot, but it is held together by a strong performance from Sam Rockwell. Drew Barrymore also plays a key role, but the relationship between these two characters never really convinces. However, once the dual nature of his character becomes a little clearer, the film is much more enjoyable, with some subtle ambiguity as to what elements of the story are true. Both George Clooney and Julia Roberts make strong cameos.
