    So today I'm watching Jim & Andy, a documentary about Jim Carrey's playing of Andy Kaufman, its weird, I've heard of method acting before but I've never, ever seen it taken this far, I've heard stories about the guy who played Gladiator and violence on set because he was method acting and I kind see how the hell that would happen based on this, like before this I thought method acting was just learning skills like Nick Cage learning to play Mandolin for the movie Captain Corelie's Mandolin.

    Its also made me think about the funny guys in film and comedians and the fine line with madness, it made me think about that other guy who was apparently a method actor when he played the Joker in the second Batman movie.

    I am watching this largely on the recommendation of the AVGN and he was totally correct about the documentary, Carrey really manages to get in character but it makes you wonder about the human mind, or makes me think anyway, I'm glad they made this movie because there was a ton of material that didnt make it into the movie (which I will have to watch some time) but happened behind the scenes.

    Next documentary I watched was Louis Thoreau's documentary Louis and the Nazis an episode of his at the extremes TV series, I've seen some documentaries like it before and I've seen Thoreau meet lots of weird and extreme characters before, this was one of the first were I thought he was in very real jeopardy, there was a guy who the minute he thought he was a jew (I think he is a jew) was threatening him with violence, either on the spot or if he saw him in town.

    Damn America, you scary.

    That was definitely one of those documentaries which made me wish I was independently wealthy and could go live in some remote rural mountain top part of the ROI and be done with people all together. Going to try and hit up something a little different for the next documentary.
