Synopsis: Double Feature: THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT, 1996, Sony Repertory, 129 min. Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt (Woody Harrelson) may seem an unlikely subject for a biopic, but in the hands of director Milos Forman and screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, his life and legal battles brilliantly illuminate the continuing American conflict between free speech and censorship.
MAN ON THE MOON, 1999, Universal, 118 min. Dir. Milos Forman. Audiences never knew quite what to think about Andy Kaufman, and this biopic from the creative team behind THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT will also keep you guessing. Jim Carrey earned a Golden Globe for his performance as the late comedian, shifting effortlessly between such Kaufman personas as Latka Gravas of TV’s “Taxi” and lounge singer Tony Clifton.
