Every second of every day, from the moment he was born, Truman Burbank has been the unwitting star of THE TRUMAN SHOW. The picture -perfect town of Seahaven, which he calls home, is actually a gigantic soundstage. Truman's friends, family and everyone he meets a re actors. He lives every moment under the unblinking gaze of thousands of hidden TV cameras. But discovering the truth is only th e beginning. He still must reckon with the god-like powers behind the scenes of the most popular and longest-running documentary-so ap opera in history.
The whole world is watching--literally--every time Truman Burbank makes the slightest move. Unbeknownst to him, in this hauntingly funny film by Peter Weir, his entire life has been an unending soap opera for consumption by the rest of the world. And everyone he knows--including his mother, his wife, and his best friend--is really an actor, paid to be part of his life. In this intriguing and surprisingly touching 1998 film, writer Andrew Niccol (screenwriter for Gattaca) imagines an ultimate kind of celebrity, then sees it brought to life with comic intensity and emotional honesty by Jim Carrey in what may be the performance of his career. Carrey has exceptional support from Laura Linney and Ed Harris, but it's his show, in a portrayal that demonstrates just what kind of range Carrey is capable of. -- Marshall Fine, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The film itself is a steadily-paced entertainment constantly bubbling with a gentle humour arising mostly from Jim Carrey's performance as the only man in town who doesn't know (as the film shows us from the first frames) that he is under the constant scrutiny of 5,000 hidden cameras. In this amiable, lightly science fictional fashion The Truman Show provokes sensible thoughts about contemporary 'media' issues, just as Niccol would soon do again (almost as successfully) in writing the Al Pacino science fiction comedy S1m0ne (2002), having already demonstrated an accomplished command of conscientious science fiction in general by writing the darker (but also wonderful) Gattaca (1997).
The Truman Show gave us unmistakeable confirmation that Carrey really is a gifted and moving leading actor, and not just a nuclear-powered funnyman.Read more ›
Well, in one word; 'Disappointing'. The original film was a bare bones DVD release with literally nothing in the way of added features, and this updated version goes some way to addressing this imbalance, but overall it doesn't bring that much to the party and still feels lacking.
Excatly what you get is this;
TV spots & Teaser trailer (hardly worth watching trailers when you own the actual film itself is there?)
Photo Galleries (ho-hum)
A 2 part documnetary about the making of. (sounds promising but actually dull as ditchwater)
and a Visual effects feature (again, not very gripping)
the best feature are the deleted scenes which are actually quite lengthy and are genuinely intriguing but hardly going to stand repeated viewing.
Sadly, there is NO directors or cast commentary which I would have thought would be the main attraction for a "Special Collector's Edition" ?
I have rated this 5 stars because the film itself is so outstanding, but if you are asking "Is it worth updating my old basic copy for this new one?" I would have to say "NO". Don't get me wrong, if you still don't own this wonderful film then this is THE edition to get, but when you consider that you can still pick up the original version for around a fiver then I cannot advise you to spend more than double that for this release, Sorry.
