I watched this documentary on Netflix today and found it to be very interesting. Here is the description...


Director Chris Smith's fascinating deep dive into actor Jim Carrey's time spent portraying famed and complicated comedian Andy Kaufman. Using approximately 100 hours of footage shot on the set of Man on the Moon documenting Carrey's transformation into Kaufman for four months. Jim Carrey earned critical acclaim and a Golden Globe for the performance, but many of the production's most Kaufmanesque moments played out behind the scenes, thankfully captured on video by Andy's former girlfriend, Lynne Margulies and former writing partner, Bob Zmuda. In Jim & Andy, Carrey looks back at the resulting footage 18 years later, reflecting on how he and Andy came up in oddly parallel universes, his experience channelling Andy and Tony and more broadly the spiritual journey of his career.


Now I never saw "Man on the moon" but I think Jim is intriguing, thoughtful and genuine. I always watched "In Living Color" back in the day and remember impersonating Fire Marshal Bill as a youngster. I could go on about his other characters or movies but this isn't about how I felt about those so I'll simply saw this is a very good watch. It's very unique, naturally since Andy Kaufman and Jim are both very unique.

It's got a 100% rating on RottenTomatoes

Watched it last night. It was really interesting.
Jim carrey went pretty method with it. Seems like he lost himself a little there. Good watch.

Then I read about that bob zmuda guy. He is a bit of a dirtbag imo.
