» The Moon Man » is not only an extraordinary biopic about an equally extraordinary artist, but also a declaration of love to mischievousness and the liberating effects of boundless anarchy — and rightly earned leading actor Jim Carrey his second consecutive Golden Globe in 2000 (after «The Truman Show»). Still, this jewel of a film has been eking out a shadowy existence on DVD for over 20 years. But that is over now.
«The Moon Man» will be available on Blu-ray for the first time since April 29, 2022! Distributor Leonine not only gives the classic about performance art legend Andy Kaufman its HD premiere, but also packs the Blu-ray debut as a limited edition — as befits such a masterpiece:

Andy Kaufman ( Jim Carrey ) wanders the American west coast in the early 70s and tries his hand at being a stand-up comedian. But his bizarre comedy has nothing to do with the generally popular superficial amusement, but instead builds on anti-humor — and many people don’t like it at all.

From now on he can hardly save himself from appearances, whether in the wrestling ring or on talk shows. However, he does not only make friends with his condescending comments, which neither his employers nor his viewers are immune to. He always hovers between genius and madness, and you never really know: is he really serious or is it all just for show? Are you allowed to do something like that, regardless of whether it’s staged or not? In the end, it’s not surprising that no one wants to believe him when he announces that he’s seriously ill…
