This movie is an interesting concept, but it requires a level of “suspension of disbelief” that I’m just not capable of.
Most of the suspension of disbelief problems come when I start thinking too hard about the supporting cast members on The Truman Show. They’re all real actors, pretending to be actors in this movie, pretending to be real people on the show. A little too meta for me to connect with them.
Plus, their lives are just as much a prison as Truman’s. Once the show ends, they’ll need just as much therapy as he would.
I really liked that they set the cameras up to seem like actual hidden cameras…for the most part, anyway.
Fake products is the key.
I spent most of this movie trying to remember who I watched it with the first time. I still can’t remember, but watching it with them again might be the only way I’ll return for a third viewing.
