A True Piece of Art. A True Piece of Life
22 November 2017 | by dallasryanSee all my reviews

First of all, when I saw Chris Smith was directing this documentary, I knew it would be good. American Movie is one of the best documentaries of all time in my opinion. My hats off to Chris Smith. That being said, this is a must see documentary, it's transcendental on all levels or perhaps it's just normal and the way it should be and is on the human level, but we're all living in such a backwards world that we see transcending as related to a spiritual or a non physical realm, but perhaps transcendental is just normal, the way it should be.

In this documentary one gets to see the process Jim Carrey went through to be Andy Kaufman/Tony Clifton and one also gets to see where Jim Carrey is now, which is a perfect term as he is very much in the now. Jim Carrey is almost an Eckhart Tolle at this point in his life. He just is. One could say that's easy for Carrey as he's got all the money in the world, but the truth is he's seen both sides of the coin i.e. having all the money in the world and being homeless, so he's a good judge of what it is to be happy and at peace in my opinion. Carrey has found his true self and happiness in just being.

This documentary gives the viewer the perspective of what a remarkable actor Jim Carrey is and also what a thought provoking human being and poet he is too. Jim Carrey says in this documentary 'free of concern.' What a wild and lovely concept. Free of concern. Obviously we all have doubts, concerns and worries i.e. about our loved ones i.e. family, friends, sister, brother, kids, dogs, etc. But past that to be truly free of fear, what a wonderful concept and I believe Carrey is truly free of all of it. How liberating.

A documentary well worth the watch to see how deep an actor will and can go, and also to see how beautiful a human being Carrey is within all his flaws and imperfections. Please watch this documentary, you will fall in love with your life, with life, with Carrey and the creation of being all over again. A truly moving piece of art. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you think.
