Review: ‘Jim & Andy’ documents Jim Carrey’s journey into his own …

WASHINGTON — Method actors are known to stay in character after the cameras stop rolling.

But watching the new Netflix documentary “Jim Andy: The Great Beyond,” you’ll swear that Jim Carrey might actually be possessed by the spirit of Andy Kaufman and his alter-ego Tony Clifton during his Golden Globe-winning performance in the biopic “Man on the Moon” (1999).

The film features sit-down interviews between a bearded Carrey and filmmaker Chris Smith, interspersed with behind-the-scenes footage that’s been buried for the past two decades.
