Critics Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle
An original, inspired piece of work.
Full review
by: Edward Guthmann
Chicago Tribune
Delicately subversive, hypnotically sardonic, full of terror, banality and wafer-thin lyricism.

One of those movies that I used to love, but now it lost some of it's charm and power. The idea of this movie that we are just puppets in someones game is far from original. Execution of it is good, but Carey wasn't the best casting choice.

Never seen such a piece of art before.!
Epic. Original. This came to me when i needed it most, when I was bored and bit overwhelmed by the repetitive and monotonous themes in films, I'd seen. Definitely deserved an Oscar, but alas, the academy doesn't seem to realize how challenging work...

Reminiscent of a character in one of Kurt Vonnegut's ficticious Kilgore Trout novels, every human being in Truman's world is an actor. Everyone's in on the decades-long, televised prank except for Truman. If the film were only a commentary on the...

Much of the plot behind The Truman Show is implausible. Impossible but completely forgivable, because this movie came out at the perfect time - right before the onslaught of reality TV. At the time, people didn't know what was coming - a closed...

Even the sky of Seahaven (Seaside, Florida) seems amiss—it's dome-shaped, and a light labeled "Sirius - 9 Canis Major" falls onto the street below. Blinds, partially obstructing our view of the pier Truman (Jim Carey) just happens to be walking...

Absolutely amazing film. Released at what seemed at the time(although not the case now,) to be a height of reality-driven television programming, this movie takes the idea to the extreme. On another note, it brought up an interesting take on...

A great idea for a great movie.
The Truman Show is the kind of movie that makes you think. It's very reflective and clever. The idea of a person finding out that his whole life is one big TV show is genius - and very well-developed in the movie. Carrey's acting is much more...

A very affecting movie with interesting religious undertones. It makes you consider (if you believe in god) that there is someone watching every single thing you do. you can't press "delete" on anything. However there is a big difference - all the...
