Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 11 June 2007
'The Truman Show' is a very entertaining and superbly made Motion Picture. This film has an energy all its own and momentum that never lets up.

It has many moments of absolute brilliance and pure comedy.

Peter Weir, a very talented Director, never lets his film slip into sentimentality, as possibly an American Director like Spielberg would have and in doing so keeps this picture well grounded in genuine emotion.

Jim Carrey's performance is probably his finest so far. His performance is so engaging, convincing and very moving.

Of course certain liberties are taken with continuity and logic to further the story, so what, it works! The final scene with the security guards is probably the best ending to any modern Motion Picture I can remember.

A last word about the wonderful use of music in this film. The use of Chopin's Piano Concerto No.1 by Arthur Rubinstein is a masterstroke! The use of the "Powaqqatsi" Soundtrack by Philip Glass to relay Truman's confusion also works brilliantly.

This film is a modern classic.
