I was once told that this film was a warning from Hollywood about the lizards who were controlling the world from their base on the Moon. Whether or not that’s true, this is still a film that everyone should watch.
Jim Carrey stars as Truman, an insurance salesman whose whole life has been part of a reality tv show without his knowledge.
With the marvellous Laura Linney and Ed Harris supporting and director Peter Weir (Dead Poets Society) bringing Andrew Niccol’s (Lord of War) words to life, the Oscar nominations are to be expected. Funny, romantic, sad, paranoia-enducing; simply wonderful.
