On the air. Unaware
Truman Burbank is the star of "The Truman Show", a 24-hour-a-day "reality" TV show that broadcasts every aspect of his life -- live and in color -- without his knowledge. His entire life has been an unending soap opera for consumption by the rest of the world. And everyone he knows -- including his wife and his best friend -- is really an actor, paid to be part of his life.

Weir, who directed the great 'Witness', uses different camera angles to make you feel like you're actually watching 'The Truman Show' and not a movie. He ends it before you get tired of the concept and helped Carrey and Harris give immaculate performances. Andrew Niccol script is a real star in the movie too because of it's inventiveness and ingenuity.

Surprising movie; one of the surprises being that Carey is actually a more than capable actor. I didnt expect it upfront, but I enjoyed this movie.

A truly entertaining, unique, and yet meaningful at the same time. I personally couldn't believe it took me this long to come across this movie. "The Truman Show" occasionally enlightened me on TOK-based questions - how do we know what we know? How do we know what is real? What is the truth? A recommended film for those looking for something different, something that you'll be thinking about for days.
