Babasını gördüğüne emindir ancak adam bir anda ortalıktan kaybolmuştur. Will I get punished by God for thinking all these things? Until one day… he finds out everything. The tightness of the screenplay and the immaculate pacing of Peter Wier contribute largely to this film's brilliance. The audience that watched the Truman Show in the movie was a hedonistic audience of consumers who wanted to be entertained no matter what the cost to Truman, reminded me of the soaps, of the Paparazzi, of how we like to know about the celebrities, and ultimatly of how the product could be the death of someone such as Princess Diana, or Truman Burbank. Ashaming that the Academy of motion picture arts and sciences has never realized what a brilliant actor Jim Carrey really is.
For me, Jim Carrey is the greatest and most versatile actor in the world! This is your first clue that you are watching something different from your normal Jim Carrey movie. When I first saw 'The Truman Show' I came out of the theatre amazed. Dünyanın en güzel adalarından birinde yaşayan halk, imrenilecek derecede ütopik bir hayat sürmektedir. It has comedy, drama, strong character development, atmosphere, originality, superb visuals, a superb score, tight writing, raises interesting moral questions as well as providing insight into the human condition. Of course to others it will just be a comedy with general comments to make and there is nothing wrong with that whatsoever; in fact the multi-level approach works to make it appeal to many audiences. Truman thinks that he is an ordinary man with an ordinary life and has no idea about how he is exploited. It touches on our sense of adventure, desire for conformity and the courage we require to question the life we are presented with.
Andrew Niccol script is a real star in the movie too because of it's inventiveness and ingenuity. Thus, the plot is entirely unpredictable but still flows along expertly. Our limited perspectives keep us from seeing. Of course, seeing the end result it is clear that he can and he delivers such a great performance that he really makes the film work. The music and visuals are top notch.
It is ashaming that the Academy is sometimes still driven by outdated prejudices. Those are the same viewers who prefer slapstick, obvious humor to the subtle layers presented here. Perhaps many of us can relate to Truman as we live in a time of routines. It's original, complex, and philosophical. I wonder if everybody thinks the same shade of red when I say red? The lies we are told keep us from the truth. I like the academy Awards, most of the time it is a fair thing, but in that year it was a disaster. A child born into a system that doesn't have a great track record or a life of relative safety with no knowledge of the cage.
One of the greatest films of our time. Thought provoking, funny, entertaining, short, enjoyable and well acted throughout well worth seeing and well worth coming back to several times. It may be Carrey's show but the support certainly helps. Taking this entirely original concept, writer Andrew Niccol and director Peter Wier take the viewer into territory uncharted by anything in film history. One cannot watch this spectacular film without wondering how a human would react when put in that kind of situation.
The plot can be viewed on so many levels that it is honestly easier to leave it to each viewer to take what they will from it. They are predictable to me now. Peter Weir demonstrated his artistic genius in Dead Poets Society and here as well. Ashaming that the Academy of motion picture arts and sciences has never realized what a brilliant actor Jim Carrey really is. I came away from 'The Truman Show' feeling inspired which is the goal of good filmmaking Jim Carrey was outstanding as Truman, underplaying him, not making him too comic or too dramatic, but giving true sincerity when asked. Hence it delivers an enjoyable and engaging central narrative that, plainly put, makes for a comic and involving yarn we grow to care for Truman and this makes the ending an emotional and satisfying one even if some viewers will bemoan the fact that to them it appears 'open ended'.
Until one day… he finds out everything. The ensemble simply cannot be faulted. Like Jim Carey stated while he received the Golden Globe that he would enjoy it down to the crunchy chewy part. He's more than just a comedian, although he can bring the humor the instant the scene needs it. He seemed to for years. I think it is because Jim has made so much Comedy, nobody really knows what tough work comedy means.
How do we know what we see is real? He deserved an Oscar nomination. He plays Christof with such arrogance and bullheadedness that you don't know whether he's helping or destroying Truman. Truman believes that he is a standard man with a conventional life and has no clue about how he is abused. At the same time, he struggled with memories, but don't we all? Jim Carrey pulls off the part wonderfully. I think it is because Jim has made so much Comedy, nobody really knows what tough work comedy means. I love the dialogue, camera shot, performances, direction, music, and running time of this movie.
What is reality besides our perception of it? Ana karakterimiz Truman da bu şanslı insanlardan biridir. Why do we accept what is around us without questioning it? Why are my parents my parents? This is a thinking person's movie. The point the media and its destructive powers is subtlely relayed through dark humor, and you don't feel like the director is smashing you over the head with his morals. This film is emotionally engaging, didactic, witty, dramatic and very unique. How else can you explain that in the year of Saving Private Ryan, The Thin Red Line and of course The Truman Show the most boring and joyless film of all time Shakespeare in Love gets eight, I repeat, eight Oscars and the Truman Show gets none? The is no explanation for him not getting the Oscar for the Truman Show, there is no excuse for not even nominating him for The Truman Show and Man on the Moon. And everyone he knows -- including his wife and his best friend -- is really an actor, paid to be part of his life.
In this movie, Truman is a man whose life is a fake one. Truman thinks that he is an ordinary man with an ordinary life and has no idea about how he is exploited. Paralysed by his fear of water since seeing his father die on a boating accident, Truman still feels he is missing something. To others it will say as much about God, the empty drone of life and the things that we all desire. Overall this is a great film that can be appreciated as much for what it is on the surface a great little comic story as it can for the issues that it hints at all the time.
