The Truman Show (35mm)

Selected by Richard Misrach

He’s the star of the show—but he doesn’t know it. Jim Carrey shines as the unwitting Truman Burbank in this mind-bending dramedy from director Peter Weir about a man whose life is a nonstop TV show—literally. Triumphant, heartbreaking, and wildly funny, The Truman Show somehow managed to predict influencer culture, the rise of live-streaming, and a social-media-fueled desire to live our lives in public.
