It’s a testament to Kaufman’s undeniable genius that we’re still so fascinated with him. Indiewire

In his short, enigmatic life, Andy Kaufman entertained and transfixed audiences while simultaneously driving them away. His work dissolved the boundaries separating reality from fiction, and his commitment to performance, both on stage and off, rendered any distinctions between his characters and his real life useless. Was he a comic, an affable sit-com star, a washed-up lounge singer, a busboy, a professional wrestler, a hoaxer, a provocateur, or a pest? Nearly 40 years after his supposed death, one question still puzzles fans and haters alike: “was that for real?” Thank You Very Much is the definitive documentary look at how a shy, oddball kid from Long Island became the most polarizing performance artist of the 20th century. Featuring Steve Martin, Danny DeVito, Marilu Henner, Laurie Anderson, Lynne Margulies, Bob Zmuda, James L. Brooks

Directed by Alex Braverman
