Coming to theatres and to Netflix tomorrow, Friday, November 17:
JIM & ANDY: THE GREAT BEYOND – FEATURING A VERY SPECIAL, CONTRACTUALLY OBLIGATED MENTION OF TONY CLIFTON
DOC NYC, Toronto, AFI Fest
A candid behind-the-scenes look at an actor committing to a role.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Director Chris Smith (AMERICAN MOVIE) teams with producer Spike Jonze to create an unforgettable portrait of two comedians, Jim Carrey and Andy Kaufman. Carrey was so dedicated to embodying the role of comedian Kaufman that he constantly stayed in character for the months of filming THE MAN ON THE MOON. During that time, a camera crew captured his disruptive behavior on and off set. Now that footage is interwoven with a probing new interview with Carrey.
