Man on the Moon 24 Dec 99

I knew next to nothing about Andy Kaufman going in, and coming out, I felt I'd seen a bit more than that. But mostly, I felt I'd seen a clips show; highlights from a performing life. While there well may not have been a 'real' Andy, I at least expect a biopic to give me some sense of how he got that way. All my Kaufman-fan friends just loved this film, so I guess it was accurate. Just a bit empty. B-

I can remember a time when where we went to the movies was just as important as the movies we went to see .... From the moment moviegoers arrived to buy their tickets, there was a sense of something special, a feeling that to step inside was to enter another time and place. - Gene Kelly
