"The Truman Show" dares to question the reality. It's original, complex, and philosophical. It manages to make you feel truly frustrated and claustrophobic. Perhaps many of us can relate to Truman as we live in a time of routines. We often live our lives without giving a second thought to the simplicity and meaninglessness of life itself. Our limited perspectives keep us from seeing. The lies we are told keep us from the truth. If we could push the boundaries of our reality, what are the odds that we'd face what Truman faced in the end? It was a joy to watch "Jim Carrey" as "Truman", it is yet another proof that Jim isn't just a comedian.

I can't believe it took me until 2015 to watch The Truman Show. It's one of those unique films that gets you thinking and its message just gets more and more relevant. A must see film!

Well first of all.. I pretty much hate Jim Carrey, I just can't take him seriously! One day my friend put this film up without me knowing what the film was about or what actors were in etc. and...OMG, that is actually an amazing film! Even better when you haven't watch the trailer or anything! Amazingly surprised! Watch it!

On the surface, The Truman Show is about a man who has lived his life trapped inside of a bubble. He tries the entire movie to pop the bubble, and he eventually does.

Under that layer, though, is a complex theme. Does Truman really enjoy his cell? He seemed to for years. At the same time, he stru More

Truman...One of my favourite films. It's just hilarious. The whole concept that this man thinks he is living in the real world.

Very well done to the Director and Writers!
