1st Review!!!

This one from the Hollywood Reporter!

"It's difficult to know at times whether Carrey is playing with us or legitimate with his talk of a benign Mr. Hyde side emerging to take control of his personality. But when he wistfully observes, 'Andy came back to make his movie,' he's oddly convincing, making this an original, unexpectedly affecting tribute to two distinctive comic performers."

I heard Andy's still alive one time
I found a video on you tube and
It was this guy who said he was Andy Kaufman
Imagine if it was ay.. but I think Jim did the best ever with man on the moon. I mean I am convinced it was Andy the whole time.
Real time spirit possession
It's possible anything is

"Using TV, movie and live-performance archive material as well as family home movies, Smith deftly tells both Kaufman and Carrey's stories while recounting one of history's weirder movie shoots and charting a chilled present-day Carrey's memories and meditations on the events of 18 years past. What emerges is a double portrait of two men whose compulsion to lose themselves in other characters is both an addiction and a variety of creative autism."

"Arguably more interesting than the film that generated it, Jim & Andy ranks alongside Lost in La Mancha as a gem salvaged from a wreck."

I'm a bit late to the party (could not login), but I've been following the Festivals and reviews closely. They are all very positive. 'Man on the Moon' is one of the best biopics I've ever seen and I am extremely interested in the docu. Great it's going be on Netflix!
