Before I watch this movie, I thought audience and Truman will find out this world is “unreal” in the end of the movie, but I did not expect in the beginning audience has been “spoiler” already, and Truman still didn’t know.
The beginning of the movie, the line of Truman: “in case I don’t see ya’, good afternoon good evening and good night.”, seem to prove his friendly, optimistic, the first half of the movie you can strongly feel that Truman is really friendly but he has a little bit tired “at this point”.
Then happen so many things, his starts doubt this world.
I Can’t Describe the Special of “The Truman Show”
Even as a super crazy fan of movie like me, I still feel very fresh when I watch this movie, it seems to hinting that many levels, no matter is intentionally or unintentional, this movie discussed so many angles in one time, that is why I very admiration for this movie.
Jim Carrey performance is Impeccable, if you like him or you have a little interest about him, you must watch this movie that makes him famous, to see how does he interpretation this movie, and after watch it you will say: “exchange for other people will never perform better!”
Although this is a 1998 movie, but I’m not feel any “old” part, this theme maybe is the reason they won so many awards, it just very fresh and very creative! makes them won countless awards, it is too many that I can’t list one by one, if you have interest you can search for it!
If you like me, love movie so much, love “The Story”! please you must watch this movie! Next let’s talk about how this movie has many angles.
Predict Modern Day Hollywood Movies Mode?
Truman’s wife will always very detailed to introduction a product When she and Truman has some trouble, you can probably know what they think behind, at first I thought this just a scene want to emphasize that it is a TV show, but it not just happen once in the entire movie, we can see director want to irony something……
And that is modern day “commercial film” just wanna make money so they put ad scene in the movie!
However, it is not that obvious in the past few years, but you still can’t deny some movie makes us speechless, like “Transformers: Age of Extinction” is the one make me impressive, it is too exaggeration that almost makes me sick, I will never forget many of the “hint ad scene”.
And this movie use the very obvious way to irony, we can know maybe at the time, already has some signs like that, and “The Truman Show” expressed their disdain! also, an open challenge some modern day movies has no soul.
The Truth is What You Believe
On a middle half of the movie, the director of “Trueman Show” said: “We accept the reality of the world with which we’re presented. It’s as simple as that.”, then guess what is my first opinion after I watch this movie? “If I was like Truman living in a fake world, and I still can’t realize?”
I think if a movie can let you think, and have a strong stamina, that is a good movie! this opinion very fridge horror, and you can’t say that there is no such possibility at all., I’m not try to frighten you, I was try to help you think, the things and information around you, could it be fake?
Let’s not talk about something too philosophy first, let’s just think about the news and website we watch everyday, you not the one who find out the news, but you still believe in no doubt? You can imagine if someone controls the media in the back, maybe “The Truth” will never is “The Truth”, just become what people believe.
And that also involve other thing, that is when someone believes you will believe, at the time you don’t have any concept. Imagine one of your friends, talk about the scandal of the stars you don’t know, you will definitely believe that, aren’t you?
Media and internet can easily use this way to control your mind, only just everybody becomes “Truman”!
So the fact is important? No! What you believe is the most important thing.
The Flooding Electronic Product? Peep Culture?
“Truman Show” is a TV show, it uses satellite to conduction, with camera and pinhole camera to shooting. Did you discover it? Electronic product now is become the part of our life, it brings us benefits but also bring harm.
Ask your grandfather, grandmother, or ask you parents, ask them if they can see the people another side of the earth or talking on the phone 30 years ago? Or….peeking at others life?
The thing you be accustomed to, when you stand the angle of 30 years ago, it is unbelievable, or you will think only “magic” can doing this thing. Yes, we thank the progress of technology bring convenient of our life, but you can’t deny we over-reliance them.
Cellphone, computer, internet, most of the people are addiction to them, the terrible thing is you and me, we all know this truth, but we just can’t leave them! Not to mention right now you have your personal information on there, we used to be think that is confidential but now we love to sharing this?
Let’s see another angle, if today “Truman show” is a real reality show live, you will still happy to watch, television station still will earn a lot of money, because that is becomes the part of our life, is Peep!
The Best Actor of Life
As an irony movie, but “The Truman World” let me understating one thing, and this thing could change everyone life. In fact, most of the people are quite dull to lived them life, me either, but after watch this movie it makes me imagine:
“Why don’t I try to be the main actor in my life?”, after thinking like this, you will enter a whole different mode of thinking in your life, because you are not “normal” anymore.
But like the Hong Kong movie “Project Gutenberg” said: “in a one million people, there is only one protagonist.”, we know it is not that easy to become protagonist, but if you don’t work hard you will only just a passerby.
This is the movie you certainly will have comprehension after you watch it, that is also the movie I hope everyone must see, it is deep impression.
And just like what Truman said at the first:”in case I don’t see ya’, good afternoon good evening and good night.”, I’m Mr. Action! Bless you are the main actor of your life! Maybe just like Truman show, you might think that is a comedy, as time goes by you will experience that maybe your life is very irony too.
