Kim Carrey is a excellent actor. But you don't have to watch any movies of him.
Except The Truman Show.
I searched "The Truman Show" online, it was in the file of "Comedy". That made me laugh...They didn't know, The Truman Show was quite different from other Kim Carrey's. It was a tragedy...But I thought Kim, the famous comedian, was the right man to be Turman. I respect him, not bcz of other comedies, but this tragedy.
The director said, "It doesn't any fake in this show. It's a life."
But that's completely wrong. All of Truman's world was fake. He's life, his emotion or his thought may be ture, but base on fakes and lies. All of the people and scenes he met were arranged.
Of course we have no rights to choose our parents and hometown. But at least you won't doubt about them. But Turman did. Everything could be fake if your parents were just two actors. And that isn't all. Turman even have no right to decide who he could love. His wife, his divorce and his new lover were arranged, too. Syivia should be his lover if he had been in the ture world. And she was the very woman who wanted to guide him to the reality. However, a woman's power was week...
The moment Turman get out of the sky board, Christof said to him, "In my world, you have nothing to fear. " He thought Turman's world is the perfect place to live. He wanted to protect his hero from the ruthless reality. However, he forget that it also protect him from human freedom. Not only the freedom to travell, to think or to love. But also the freedon to konw what's real, what he belongs to and who's controling him.
Born a free man, you are equal to every one. No one can decide who you are. The director, even the God should have nothing to do with your fate. You are youself. You life is your own, not for the audiences in front of the TVs or others who are watching you in the flesh. Actually, The Truman Show was killing Truman. They stolen his soul and freedom. However, they even thought they were protecting him! Why couldn't they saw Turman's confused face and painful mind?
Luckly, Turman was a clever man, a fighter. he got out the arranged doom at the end. But what about me? what about us all around the ture world? How can you proof that the world which you are living in is really a ture one?
Turman, a ture man, with fake life.
Turman, fortunately he's still a ture man. Only bcz he's still wondering what is happening outside.
