Jim Carrey was one of my favorite actors as a child. Andy Kaufman fascinated me as a young man. Yet, this incredible new documentary tries to convey that Jim and Andy are two sides of the same coin. Two human beings that learned how to be free through their art. It is all about the making of Man on the Moon, one of the most underrated biopics of all time and in my mind, the crowning achievement of Jim Carrey's career. Carrey didn't simply impersonate Andy Kaufman. Andy Kaufman possessed Jim Carrey. Through never before behind the scenes footage, we see Carrey slowly disappear into Kaufman and whether it was intentional method acting or not is unknown. Carrey came into the project as the hottest comedy star in the world and came out something completely different.

... and What of Andy Kaufman? Many say he's dead and many say he's still alive somewhere, playing a big gag that we just don't know about. Andy was mysterious like that. But his spirit exists, somewhere in our universe. Anyone with the bravery to be different from everyone else, in essence is an Andy.
