Flick Pick: The Truman Show

Today's Flick Pick:

The Truman Show
(Paramount, 1998)

Again, Jim Carrey as the unwitting star of an elaborate whole-life reality show. In another turn that shows his acting chops, by turns funny, touching, and thought-provoking. This film features a cast, director, and writer who've received a total of 17 Academy Award nominations without once getting so much as one. Would that every such collection of talent would "fail" so engagingly as they do in this outing.

An absolutely worthwhile watch for every minute from fade in to final credits.
