The New York Times - Manohla Dargis
The result isn’t another ho-hum documentary likeness in which all the elements neatly and often flatteringly stack up. “Jim & Andy” is instead a complexly layered and textured Cubist portrait, one that’s been constructed from fragments of its two title subjects and their work.
Screen International - Lee Marshall
It makes for powerful and stimulating viewing whether or not a game is being played with viewers.
Variety - Owen Gleiberman
Jim & Andy is fleetly edited and engrossing, animated by a sense of discovery.
Los Angeles Times - Robert Abele
Catnip for comedy nerds and psychoanalysts, "Jim & Andy" works as both a vibrant raising-of-the-dead for the crazed, showbiz-piercing genius that was Kaufman — there's plenty of footage from his performance-art career — and a peek into the mind of a massively talented, box office-busting comedy star at a self-doubting, turbulent time in his life
The Guardian - Jordan Hoffman
It isn’t nearly as deep as it thinks it is, but it is marvellously entertaining.
