      At the hands of such manipulators, we see how the role of media in our world persuades us into living in a way that we would otherwise not intend to. It is quite often oblivious to all of us, the effect that media has on us.

      Truman show was one of the best films I’ved ever seen . At first of the movie when I find out that this film is not comedy I thinked that Jim carry just plays comedy films and this film well be nor good at all , but when it was the middle of the movie I was getting the point that what is happening in this movie and to Trueman and the film was getting kinda drum because he’s whole life for people was a cool show (but siliwia was the only one that helped Trueman to escape) but for himself was just lies and jokes and this was really sad. But at the end of the movie Truman finally escaped that nonsense world and everybody was happy for hem , and at this point I give this movie 10 out of 10.

      This kind of movies always make me to question my life, my actions, and the world around me. Which I don’t consider as something negative. It helps me to don’t take everything too seriously and enjoy life more; as if all of this is just a game.
      About the movie it self I have to say that I liked it very much. I am a fan of Jim Carrey and as always he gave a very nice performance.
