#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Since birth, a big fat lie defines the well-organised but humdrum life of the kind-hearted insurance salesman and ambitious explorer, Truman Burbank. Utterly unaware of the thousands of cleverly hidden cameras watching his every move, for nearly three decades, Truman’s entire existence pivots around the will and the wild imagination of the ruthlessly manipulative television producer, Christof–the all-powerful TV-God of an extreme 24/7 reality show: The Truman Show. As a result, Truman’s picturesque neighbourhood with the manicured lawns and the uncannily perfect residents is nothing but an elaborate state-of-the-art set, and the only truth he knows is what the worldwide television network and its deep financial interests dictate. Do lab rats know they are forever imprisoned?
Plot: Truman Burbank is the star of The Truman Show, a 24-hour-a-day reality TV show that broadcasts every aspect of his life without his knowledge. His entire life has been an unending soap opera for consumption by the rest of the world. And everyone he knows, including his wife and his best friend is really an actor, paid to be part of his life.

In a world experimenting with big brother reality shows and questioning what is real in a mtrix kind of way, The Truman Show is a splendid and well executed movie about a man owned by a corporation from birth, who lives on the set while not being aware of the fact that everything around him is fake. Brilliant Jim Carey.
On the surface, The Truman Show is about a man who has lived his life trapped inside of a bubble. He tries the entire movie to pop the bubble, and he eventually does.
Under that layer, though, is a complex theme. Does Truman really enjoy his cell? He seemed to for years. At the same time, he struggled with memories, but don’t we all?
As the viewer, we’re left to determine the morality of the happiness of millions versus the freedom of one. We’re also left to consider whether Truman’s cage was better than his freedom. A child born into a system that doesn’t have a great track record or a life of relative safety with no knowledge of the cage.
The viewer also has to determine the sturdy nature of reality. What is reality besides our perception of it? What’s real to Jim or to Bob? Are the things that are real to them real to me if I’ve never seen or heard about them?
Beyond the philosophical questions the movie poses, the film itself is solid. Jim Carrey pulls off the part wonderfully. He’s more than just a comedian, although he can bring the humor the instant the scene needs it. The supporting cast fell right in line.
The pacing may be a little slow early on for many viewers, but that is remedied once the action begins to pick up.
If you want something light and silly, go watch something else by Carrey.
Very engaging even for non Jim Carrey fans
As many fans know, Jim Carrey is the man when it comes to slapstick comedy. His comical physicality is outrageous and his ability to emulate anything from cartoons to other actors is top notch. But anytime before 1998 I think I can safely say that not many people saw Carrey try and jump out of his shell and try a role that wasn’t truly in the comedy genre. I definitely didn’t see it coming. And to be honest, I wasn’t sure if I would really enjoy it. But in the end, I did, not only because of how well Carrey portrayed his character but with an excellent story to back if up.
The plot is about Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) who is viewed live 24 hours a day, uncensored, as a soap opera to the real world through public broadcasting. The thing is, Truman Burbank is the only one who doesn’t know this. Everything else around is all a set-up. And when I mean everything,…everything…is a set-up. Even the sun is fake! Nothing is real. All the people Burbank knows are all actors. People who go through the same routine every day.
And that’s partially what makes this film so great. Every piece of the “set” that Truman Burbank lives in is so believable. Along with this is Christof, acted by Ed Harris. Christof is the creator of Truman’s world and he essentially plays God. Everything that Truman Burbank is as a person, was created under the supervision of Christof. The whole story itself, written by Andrew Niccol, brings up the controversial issue of nature vs nurture. Who should have control over whose life. Well I think that answer is obvious.
Jim Carrey himself actually does have some comedic moments but it’s not because he wants the movie to be a comedy. Carrey does what he does because it is the connection to how a human would react to such a situation that makes it funny. And along with those funny moments comes a real emotional performance. Sure Carrey can deliver laughs but also proves that he can portray human drama. That’s a question a lot of people wanted to see if Carrey could pull off and he did it well.
Adding to the emotion is composer Philip Glass’ score. Yes, it did evoke the right emotions and I don’t think it needed a theme either for this particular story. Usually I do, but it didn’t seem necessary here. Unfortunately for me, I prefer to see Jim Carrey in his comedic skin. I didn’t mind the different role that he took on here but it didn’t feel like I was watching the movie I wanted to see. And I’ll admit, I put too much thought into believing Jim Carrey would’ve made the film more comedy than drama, so basically I disappointed myself. So on that note, it could be disappointing to fans of Carrey for his comedic films as well.
As the first drama film that comic gut buster Jim Carrey stars in, it is not that bad as some would expect it to be. Carrey can deliver a performance like real human but for the hardcore fans, it may upset.
True Best Picture of 1998
A Solar eclipse occurs when a relatively small, dark, cold object comes between an observer and the brilliance of the sun. A Best Picture eclipse occurs when “Saved-By-The-Bell”-meets-“Amadeus” and “Saving Private Shmaltzy” comes between the movie-going-public and the brilliance of “The Truman Show.”
Frankly, I don’t know how this script got past the powers-that-be in Hollywood. It is a scathing indictment of the media. My only guess is that they saw the word “comedy” and “Jim Carrey” and decided not to look at it too hard. And judging from some of the comments here, it went over the heads of a pretty good slice of the viewing public as well. This story is a modern-day fable — for those with the eyes to see.
If you are watching this to be entertained by Jim Carrey or to see a great sci-fi flick, you will be disappointed. If you are watching this to see the most elegant satire ever to grace the silver screen (maybe ever), then this movie is for you.
I will have this one on DVD. 9/10 —
