Trivia

Between the filming of Carrey's interview & the release of the film on Netflix in 2017, Jim Carrey had a sort of spiritual awakening as mentioned in the closing of the film. Carrey revealed that he saw the world as a facade and a game to be played by people that are determined enough to live out their roles to extremes, like Andy did with his performance attacking the mainstream realm of entertainment at the time.

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".

Amazing journey into a performer's mind.
17 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie is an unique look at the crafting arts of an actor. The details about the transformation of Jim Carrey are something to behold. Of courser, people in the business will enjoy it a lot and in more subtle ways. But everybody can enjoy the expression of humanity here. The camera work is really amazing and it disappears between a very good direction. It really gives a deeper understanding at the fantastic original movie its based on. I think we can agree that it was that movie, and after it many more, that showed us the great actor Jim Carrey is. Of course many of us already knew that when we saw him in The Mask, Dumb and dumber, and Pet Detective.
