This is a nice Cannes Film Festival poster, but Peter Weir's The Truman Show ('98) is no masterpiece. I disliked it from the get-go. Jim Carrey's "Truman Burbank" is unaware that he's living inside a corporate-funded, hermetically-sealed reality TV dome. This is what modern life feels like to tens of millions of actual Americans, of course, so we all get the metaphor. But I found the premise impossible. Complete disengagement.
