Jim Carrey's self analysis is devastatingly touching.

Madness or genius? After seeing this doc, and Carrey's method approach into getting under Kaufman's skin, you might well wonder. The truth is more complicated than that of course, but when talking about both Carrey and Kaufman, the same truth applies to both men. They are/were both tremendously talented, and they are/were both capable of pushing their art and their behaviour to the limits. The doc is mesmerising, and serves as an offbeat tribute to both men. It also reminded me that I do need to rewatch 'Man on the Moon' again sometime soon!

But I did go into this knowing the careers of both Jim Carrey and Andy Kaufman. Seeing the behind the scenes of a movie with a method actor in progress shows the true ups and downs of said approach. On one hand, making many of the cast & crew go through hell the entire shoot for the sake of staying in character seems entirely unnecessary. Yet, by the same token, could anybody pull off Kaufman without staying Kaufman from start to finish. Maybe, that answer is somewhere in the middle, Andy wasn't always plugged into bizarre at 11 and seeing Jim be that way all the time makes one wonder. Nevertheless, a lovely insight into the minds of two unique people, tethered together from two planes of existence by a single movie.

One of the most irritating documentaries I’ve watched in awhile.

I love Jim Carry, but man does he come across as a pretentious and narcissistic douche bag in this documentary and the behind the scene clips of ‘Man on the Moon’. So up his own ass while trying to act deep and insightful…mo More
