Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

Sundance award-winning documentarian Chris Smith (American Movie) explores Jim Carrey's time spent portraying complicated comedian Andy Kaufman using 100 hours of footage shot on the set of Man on the Moon.

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.

Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - The Story of Jim Carey & Andy Kaufman With a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton is an extremely watchable movie. It isn't nearly as deep as it thinks it is, but it is marvellously entertaining.
