Quotes

Jim Carrey: Where did this character come from? What is the dirt that the pearl is built around? And the pearl is the personality that you build around yourself as a protection against that thought: "If they ever find out that I'm worthless, if they ever find out that I'm not enough, I'll be destroyed".

Interesting ego trip lacking real depth
23 November 2017 | by farukanoiaSee all my reviews

I'd like to start by saying that I find the concept of the movie rather intriguing. Showing the parallelisms between two exceptional comedian who in their own way revolutionized the way we perceive comedy today. Having been a fan of both comedians I was looking forward to this movie. Unfortunately the movie couldn't stand up to my expectations. Firstly, one does barely get to see the transformation of Carrey. The viewer is thrown into the action accompanied by an almost preacher like Jim Carrey who retells his tale which is barely connected to what has happened back then. The movie is merely a documentary without any insight or revelation. Whilst the scenes are well chosen, if one knows the movie, the entire aim of this documentary is not obvious.

The documentary is rather a piece of art itself than it is a proper movie.
