The Truman Show

 (1998)

The Truman Show Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Truman Burbank is a man whose life is a nonstop TV show. Really. His quaint hometown is a giant studio set run by a visionary producer/director/creator, folks living and working there are Hollywood actors, even his incessantly bubbly wife is a contract player. All Truman wants to do is find the true love of his life, but for some reason, the whole world seems against him...

For more about The Truman Show and the The Truman Show Blu-ray release, see the The Truman Show Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Director: Peter Weir
Writer: Andrew Niccol
Starring: Jim Carrey, Laura Linney, Ed Harris, Noah Emmerich, Natascha McElhone, Holland Taylor

The Truman Show Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Truman Show arrives on Blu-ray in fantastic 1080p transfer. The film's original matted aspect ratio of 1.85:1 has been opened up for this release, allowing the film to fill the entire 1.78:1 frame that is native in 16:9 high definition televisions. Fear not, however, as opening the matte does not cause any valuable picture information to be lost. Having seen The Truman Show a number of times, I was immediately impressed with the video quality evident in this release. The film looks fresh and crisp and doesn't suffer from distracting dirt or residue. It's about as pristine as they come. Artifacts are also a non- issue. I didn't detect a trace of edge enhancement, compression issues, banding or noise. There is a small amount of grain present in the film that becomes more readily apparent in dark scenes, but it never approaches excessive levels. Because The Truman Show was shot with a purposefully warm look, skin tones can occasionally veer into orange territory. I don't think this is the fault of the transfer; rather, it seems to be intentional. In a comparison to the film's original DVD release, this Blu-ray edition is a clear upgrade featuring significantly improved and more saturated colors, vastly increased detail and much more pleasing contrast and black levels. The Truman Show looks spectacular on Blu-ray.


The Truman Show Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

I've been excited for quite some time to hear Philip Glass' amazing music for The Truman Show in wonderful Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless, and, boy, does this disc not disappoint. This stunning track's dynamics are among the best I've encountered on Blu-ray. Bass is thunderous and dynamic, surround usage is creatively employed and the film's piano-centric compositions have a weighty and expressive presence. And that's just the music! Dialogue is also perfectly rendered with nary a hiss or uneven syllable. The film's few action oriented scenes are also well presented with the occasional directional flourish and an abundant sense of atmosphere. It's an enveloping experience that adds to the building tension in Truman's quest of discovery. Highly recommended!
