| A Window into the Actor's Craft
For his role in "Man on the Moon," Jim Carrey took on the character of Andy Kaufman so fully that, as he relates here, he found himself reacting off the set as Andy would have reacted rather than as Jim would react.

Along with his known talents, Carrey shows himself in this doc to be a very articulate speaker, even when describing--as he does here a lot--his internal states. If actors need empathy, Carrey here puts that empathy into words--words we can understand and feel.

If you're not familiar with Kaufman, there's a great variety of footage from Kaufman's performances.

It's hard to compare this to any other doc I've seen. Its approach to the subject is as unique as the subject itself. If you want to understand and appreciate a side of Jim Carrey you may never have seen before, or what actors go through when throwing themselves into roles, this film is for you.
