Aro Favourite Truman Show, The


USA 1998, 103 minutes
Dir. Peter Weir
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Drama, Comedy, Science Fiction

Aroview: A brilliantly conceived script by expat-Kiwi whizz-kid Andrew Niccol (GATTACA) finds consummate direction in the hands of esteemed veteran Peter Weir, and the result is a landmark film.

It's the ultimate conspiracy movie, and perhaps the last word on dog-eared '90s fixations (tele-voyeurism, commercialism), whilst also cleverly ruminating on questions of reality, identity, philosophy and even The Man Upstairs. Easily one of the brightest and most innovative films to emerge from Hollywood this decade.
