Jim & Andy: The Great Be­yond — Fea­tur­ing a Very Spe­cial, Con­trac­tu­ally Ob­li­gated Men­tion of Tony Clifton Net­flix, Avail­able Fri­day

Herald on Sunday - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Based around the in­cred­i­ble be­hind the scenes footage from Jim Car­rey’s per­for­mance as his hero Andy Kauf­man in the 1999 biopic Man on The Moon, this threat­ens to be the most en­ter­tain­ing doc­u­men­tary in ages. Car­rey says in the doc­u­men­tary, “When I found out I had the part, I was look­ing at the ocean and that’s when Andy came back to make his movie.” From that point on, Car­rey was Kauf­man, to a bizarre and freak­ish ex­tent. He says that the stu­dio fought to pre­vent the be­hind-the-scenes footage of the shoot be­ing made pub­lic, so peo­ple wouldn’t think he was an ar­se­hole.
