Genres: Documentary

Demographics: All audiences


Dumb and Dumber, The Mask, Me, Myself & Irene, Ace Ventura... Jim Carrey ruled over the 90s with an incurable and subversive style. Contortionist face and actor of a digital revolution from which the last golden age of the cartoon resurfaces, he was the pulling face of the Clinton years, the link between Charlie Chaplin and Roger Rabbit, the last explosion of dumb laugh before the 9/11 depression and the takeover of the Disney-Marvel franchises on the Hollywood imagination. At a time when Donald Trump, his intimate enemy, has stolen his role as a toon, what place can Jim Carrey still find on screens where comedy is declining? Much more than a doc for film buffs, the film is a vibrant appeal about an era that was only the outrageous premonition of today's world.
