Peter Weir directed this comedy-drama, a commentary on all-pervasive media manipulation. Scripted by Andrew M. Niccol (Gattaca), the film plays like a combination of the British TV series The Prisoner and Paul Bartel's The Secret Cinema. Read More

The Truman Show is a fantastic movie and shows a real point in life. When you walk into the store, there is cameras watching you almost EVERYWHERE and you could be picking your nose! It's almost like your life is on TV, just like Truman. Great acting, story and a marvelous..well filmed and edited movie. Honestly, if they made a remake or would stink.

It seems that the Truman Show is so alternative from the mainstream that the audiences are stunned and agitated at the first sight. Yet, it is no more than a small portrait of reality. Just as the movie Dead Poets Society, director Peter Weir shows the provocative idea of breaking the convention and think of things in a higher stage. Jim Carrey as Truman Burbank proved himself as a dramatic actor
