When I first saw 'The Truman Show' I came out of the theatre amazed. This is
your first clue that you are watching something
different from your normal Jim Carrey movie. I love the dialogue, camera
shot, performances, direction, music, and running time of this movie. There
is nothing I would do to change it. 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
giving true sincerity when asked. He deserved an Oscar nomination. Ed Harris
has always been a good actor, but in this movie he's a great actor. He plays
Christof with such arrogance and bullheadedness that you don't know whether
he's helping or destroying Truman. He and the director, Peter Weir, deserved
their Oscar nods.
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. Overall, 'The Truman Show' is what I like to call a true American classic.
