The Truman Show


Note: This piece of prose contains spoilers!

This is a brilliant movie. The script is very original. Performances are too good. The idea is very similar to another movie I had seen previously The Dark City. The main difference is that this movie is a comedy, whereas, The Dark City was a psychological thriller.


In this movie free will of the protagonist Truman triumphs over the intelligent design, whereas in the dark city it's shown that there is no free will. 

Truman is a star in a TV show which is totally dedicated to his life. It's a show about everything Truman does. Events are controlled by creators of television show in a dramatic fashion. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie. This is not only just a comedy but also a very thought provoking film.
