The Truman Show Critique

The Truman show is a movie about the life of Truman, who plays as himself in the show. Everything around him is not real; the persons around him are actors and actresses, the environment and the weather are manually controlled by Christof, who plays the role of God (creator), and there are millions and millions of viewers watching him everyday.

To continue, my God knows everything about me, just like the Psalms 139:6 expresses: “…all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be”. God is my creator, He controls my life, and I’m happy with that. In addition, just because God controls my life, does not mean that He took my liberty away; He gives me free...
