You could never be sure what Andy Kaufmann truly meant, and what was just one of his eccentric jokes. This biographical film follows him from his first stand-up performances in local clubs to his role in the sitcom Taxi and a shocking wrestling show, to a last joke at his own funeral.

MUBI's take

Few filmmakers can boast such persistent interest in outsider figures railing against the system as Miloš Forman. Man on the Moon takes a mallet to the traditions of the biopic with anarchic gusto, extracting a career-defining performance from Jim Carrey that transcends the bounds of impersonation.
