The Truman Show * Peter Weir * 1998

I’m not exactly fond of James Carey, but still I watched his first serious film when it was shown on TV. “The Truman Show” isn’t really a drag either, actually quite an enjoyable film. It was released in a time that ‘reality’ TV-programs such as Big Brother were very popular and “The Truman Show” played in the cinemas together with EDtv, a film with a similar subject. Truman Burbank has a boring life and slowly he discovered that his life is literally one big TV-show with him as main-character. The city he lives in is a studio and he has been filmed and watched since his birth. When finding this out he tries to break free, which eventually he does.
A nice film when you have nothing to watch.
