We're constantly kept guessing as to what's real or false. Intriguing.

Superficially clever yet profoundly shallow.

Makes you unsure whether you have learned more (or absolutely nothing) about this mysterious and undoubtedly talented man.

Amadeus with a twist.
January 1, 2000
One of the year's most entertaining movies.

Mesmerizing and entertaining.

Kaufman always wanted to keep us guessing, and this movie respects his wishes.

I figured that if anyone could make a flick about the even more objectionable Kaufman, these three were the guys for the job. I was wrong.

Uninspired and relatively clueless.

Enormously underwritten and unfunny.

Man on the Moon will be especially interesting for those who like a little TV history with their movies.
January 1, 2000
This is less a story than a series of exhibits.
January 1, 2000
The big problem with Man on the Moon is that it settles for being a thing of surfaces.

Go get your wallet. Right now. I'll wait. Got it? OK. Open it up. Take out $8. Now go to the nearest toilet. Drop the cash into the bowl. Flush. Congratulations. You have just simulated attending Man on the Moon.

A strange trip but a far from satisfying one.
