1. At the point of the search party, it's past the point of maintaining the illusion. Everyone knows the gig is up - now it's just damage control, to prevent Truman from escaping the dome. 2. They have 5,000 cameras, but you have to keep in mind that these aren't used like security cameras- they're used to facilitate getting the right shot for the show. Only two people are watching, because they only need to make sure they're watching one person. That's why the search party was necessary in the first place- those cameras are ill suited for finding someone- as they're meant to track someone.

They weren't testing him to see if he could overcome his fear of the ocean. They were reminding him of the fear, letting him feel it to renew the feeling, and thereby anchoring it deeper in his subconscious, to dissuade him from trying to leave to Fiji.

The scene that always brings tears to my eyes is when Truman’s boat crashes into the wall and he starts wailing on it trying to break through. He had all these life-shattering moments but at that moment it was confirmed that his life was a lie. And yet, even after this he still wishes that he’s wrong; he tries to break through and get to a land he was never going to find. This movie in my opinion is without a doubt Jim Carrey’s best movie and performance. It easily in my top movies of all time.

In my country, the title of the film was "The Television Man". Critics here said it is a terrible film, very American (dumb). But I think it was okay for teenagers.

Your commentary is interesting and well delivered but very very shallow. The Truman Show is in no way a tragedy it is simply an allegory similar to Platos allegory of the cave. Your job as the viewer is to start out identifying with Truman then realize you're one of millions of viewers then finally come to understand that Truman has done what none of us can do, he's escaped the reality he's been trapped in all his life. We watch Truman, we wish our lives were simple like Truman's, we pity Truman, we become Truman.

Had been with my gf for two years and a half, living with her for a year and a half, discovered she had been talking to someone else for 8 months, every single kind thing, every single demonstration of love, care or whatever it was, was revealed to me to have been a complete lie, the person I loved the most, the person I cared for the most and the person I thought I could fully rely on was completely fake, I don't know if I will ever be able to recover, I'm going through the motions, taking therapy and exercising, but I don't believe I have any strength left, just going through the motions...

I have think there was an inside team of people that wanted Truman to know the truth. The sequencing of events following the light drop is just too coincidental for people not to be behind it ( the radio, elevator, all of which never happened before and happened in quick succession following the light drop).They did these things hoping that Truman would catch on and he did. The movie makes it clear that people have attempted to tell Truman the truth so I don’t think it unlikely that some employees of the show also wanted this for him

Jim Carey's performance has a lot to do with the schooling he received from Peter Weir during the shooting about how to portray that character as well as how to horn the art of acting. I don't see the movie as a tragedy style as it has a relatively happier ending for the main character and his love interest as well as many viewers who hoped he would be freed from the dome. Knowing everybody he knew inside the dome were actors and his long term personal relationships inside the dome were false is tragic for Truman who now only have Lauren as the only true personal relationship he has, but not necessarily a tragedy due to the ending where he finds a way to find his true love and leave the dome and the opportunity for him to step into the world outside the dome and develop real personal relationships. Overall, i would not place the movie in the tragedy genre as I see due the relatively happier ending and the hope it generates in the viewer's mind.

I disagree that Truman would be over the top paranoid after the movie - because he showed an unusual, very remarkable resilience to a truly INSANE level of manipulation, peer pressure and lies - and went all the way to get to the bottom of things. Also, the movie clearly shows how in spite of the manipulations, he can STILL correctly identify sincerity! Would he GO ON to maintain a critical mind? Most certainly! But he would actually have a saner mind than the majority of people OUTSIDE of the literal bubble he had lived in - because HE had fought his way through all the way - whereas so many people in normal life succumb to their fears of breaking through the lies they are living in.

The real tragedy I thought was that Truman just wanted to explore, and the rest of the world has the freedom he wants but spend their time watching Truman living an ordinary life in their "cells" all the time. This movie inspired me to buy a camper and try to travel as much as I can, that sitting around waiting was a waste of my life.

I always wondered about the girl going to meet Truman at the end. Like imagine the craziness surrounding the studio, there’s no way she can easily meet him. Heck, maybe the US president forces him into a witness protection scheme to ensure his safety while teaching him about the world. Everyone will be hysterical.

Jim Carey's performance is astounding and his casting was inspired. We the audience know him by his usual roles, and therefore immediately realize that this is precisely the type of performance that Christof would want to nurture. This makes his suspicious behavior as obvious, alarming, and heartbreaking to us as it would be to a fictional audience that grew up watching Truman.

I enjoyed this, thank you. I love psychological explorations - The Matrix, Total Recall, The Truman Show. I think they make the best films of all, because the form of film itself matches the subject being explored by the authors. The one thing I would say, in response to your comments about Truman's life after the film, is consider that he knows he can trust Lauren, and also his escape brought his audience around to being on his side, rooting for his freedom from Christo. So I think those things give him a place to land in the real world, although he would have PTSD something fierce! Also, your thoughts made me realize that Truman rhymes with human. I always wondered about the name. But now I thing it means "True Human" - someone whose primary need is to seek and find and hold onto the truth, is willing to have all his natural and physical needs go unmet, and is willing to die in order to posses the truth. "I am the way, the truth, and the life." - Jesus of Nazareth

Does the actual lack of morality of the "characters"/co-citizens and friends of Truman remind you of something? Say cults maybe, mainly based on religion? The actors/"characters" have convinced themselves that they are doing a noble thing conspiring to keep an unsuspected man living a lie. Also Jim Carrey is a well rounded actor able to effortlessly transition from a goofy character to serious one, while his acting is spot on all the time.

A great review of an absolute masterpiece of a film. Truth be told, I wasn't much of a Jim Carrey fan until I saw this movie. His ability to go from manic to tragic was almost surreal. The scene where his 'best friend' says "If everybody is in on it, I'd have to be in on it too" resulting in this horrific epiphany on the part of Truman as he looks at Marlon and realizes 'that's true...you'd HAVE to be in on it too." I too cannot think of any other actor who could have captured that moment as well as Jim Carrey does. Sheer genius. It's uncomfortable and horrifying to see that realization in his haunted, disbelieving eyes. The intensity of that scene is burned into my memory forever. It's deeply affecting in every way. Thank you for your review!
