63% Man on the Moon (1999) " Forman ends it all with a hint that Kaufman may still be with us, a narrative cop-out akin to the it-was- all- a-dream denouement. If he is alive, Andy Kaufman may be the only one in the theatre laughing." — Winnipeg Sun

Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/5 88% American Beauty (1999) " Peers between the white picket fenceposts of suburbia to reveal emotional toxicity and unexpected grace." — Jam! Movies
