Product Description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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.

Ok....if you are reading this review for the Special "Collectors" edition of the TRUMAN SHOW then I am going to assume that you are already familiar with the film itself and are more curious about the extras on this DVD.
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.

Format: DVD
The "Truman Show" directed by Peter Weir and written by Andrew Niccol is a film about the life of a man called Truman Burbank. Unbeknown to himself he was adopted by a film company, when he was a baby and since then he has been the star of his own reality TV show which is broadcasted all over the world. The only purpose of his life is to entertain television viewers worldwide. All the people around him are actors, even his so-called parents, his wife and his best friend Marlon, who are acting from a script written by the creator and producer Christof (played by Ed Harris). He lives in Seahaven, a specially constructed film studio which is like a world within the world. Seahaven is situated on an island, which Truman has never left, because he is afraid of water. His life is very ordinary - he is married to a woman called Meryl, he has got a nice small house and an office job - but nevertheless millions of people all over the world watch him every day. Christof is able to manipulate Truman's behaviour as he can easily change the weather, decide which person should talk to Truman and what about - he can decide everything in Truman's life. However, after two decades Truman starts to be suspicious as technical breakdowns become more frequent (a spotlight falls down from the sky when he's on his way to work and his car radio starts to transmit the producer's instructions). In addition to this, Truman has seen his father again, who is supposed to be dead and he starts to think about events in the past, in particular about the time when he met Sylvia - his real love. Through various flashback scenes, we gain an insight into Truman's past, and events which shape his personality and ambitions. The rest of the film consists of his gradual realisation that all is not as it seems.Read more ›

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE "BLU RAY" VERSION OF THE FILM***

Watching Peter Weir's 1998 film in 2009 is a weird and wonderful trip - if not a slightly disconcerting one at times.

First - it's as masterful and brilliant as you remember it - a very clever unfolding story about a man whose life is permanent Candid Camera for the entire planet - living in an artificially created world with literally everyone around him being an actor. Then there's the stunning and believable performances of a perfectly picked cast (Carey, Linney and Harris all shine). And second - with the appalling Big Brother polluting our airwaves night after night - "The Truman Show" is not just relevant eleven years later - it seems to have actually predicted our television future...

But back to the BLU RAY - the first thing you notice is the picture, which is a mixture of beautiful clarity one moment running alongside very steady DVD quality the next. Clarity highlights would include - - Noah Emmerich's sea of freckles as he's interviewed in the opening credits - he plays Marlon who is supposedly Truman's best friend - always turning up with a "Brewsky" whenever there's a problem (they actually cake and paste Noah's face with make up to cover up his freckles in later shots). There are the pearls on Sylvia's wrist in the library when Truman and her finally talk, the "How Does It All End?" button on her cardigan - stunning clarity. There's Truman digging the garden in his horrible orange pants as his wife stops on her bicycle for a little product-placement (played superbly by Laura Linney)...
"Look Truman! Chef's Pal! It's a Grater, Dicer and Peeler all in one!"
"Wow!
