The Rewind (1990s) The Truman Show

The Truman Show (1998)

Genre: Drama

Starring: Jim Carrey, Ed Harris, Laura Linney

An insurance salesman  is surprised to learn that his entire life is actually a television show.

This is among Jim Carrey’s best films. (His best films are often dramas.) This is a great movie that can still be enjoyed today.  There are several films that deal with the increasingly prominent surveillance of society, but I still hold this one as perhaps the best of the bunch.

I was really impressed with Jim Carrey because of this role. He had so often been the slapstick/low-brow style humor. I’ll admit I found some of it very funny, but this was Carrey actually acting and it earned him some respect.  Also, give some love to Ed Harris who was excellent in this role as well.
