Good Afternoon, Good Evening, and Good Night

The Truman Show is the movie that made us take Jim Carrey seriously as an actor. The Truman Show plays on that feeling we have that our lives may be staged in some way. The movie doesn’t try to hide the fact that Truman’s entire life is being filmed without his knowledge. Though it does take advantage of that fact with blatant product placement and sudden character appearances. Making the movie both dramatic and funny at the same time. The basic premise of the fictional show is that one man’s life has been filmed continuously since birth. I can’t help but wonder if a show like this could happen in real life. Would enough people be willing to watch a show plays 24 hours a day. Jim Carrey is the only actor I can see in a role this different. He should have gotten an Oscar nomination for it. The Truman Show has such a great premise, that I would recommend it to anyone who feels like they’re not in control of their life. And in case I don’t see you,ย Good Afternoon, Good Evening, and Good Night.
