Storyline

Jim Carrey was once the king of movie comedies, but he's been something of a recluse on the big screen over the last several years. His last string of starring roles came in 2013 and 2014 with the releases of "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," "Kick-Ass 2," and "Dumb and Dumber To," all of which misfired with critics and struggled at the box office. Although he appeared in a supporting role in this year's "The Bad Batch," he was unrecognizable and rejected all press opportunities to support the film. The documentary finds Carrey hard at work in his art studio, and it features some truly jaw-dropping paintings made by the actor. Carrey picked up art six years ago as a way to "heal a broken heart," and it's produced some of his best work ever. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

If it is real, then I'm happy for him

"Jim Carrey: I Needed Color" is a 6-minute documentary short film from this year (2017) and it is the first directorial effort apparently by prolific and successful producer David L. Bushell. But the star here is of course the name you can read in the title: Golden Globe winning American actor Jim Carrey. I am quite a fan of his and it's a bad joke he did not get an Oscar nomination for The Truman Show for example, but we will talk about that on another occasion. This really short film we have here is about Carrey's new passion for painting (just like George W. Bush for example) and we get to see many of his paintings and also hear from him why he so much enjoys this new hobby. It sounds deep and important to him, but he is so good of an actor that I was always unsure if he is just toying with us and that it is all make-believe or if he really loves this activity like it sounds from this film here. I hope it's the latter as I admire his talent and I hope he found something that makes him truly happy and defines his life from now on, even if it would be a pity if we see him on screen on fewer and fewer occasions. But I can live with that. As for this one here, it is not a film that will get you into painting or anything, but that also never was the intention. I liked it overall and it is somewhat soothing. A good watch for my fellow Carrey fans.
