The Truman Show (1998) score: 96%
How does Jim Carrey follow his mid-90’s string of silly hits? With a career-best dramatic role in a film that’ll make you paranoid for life, of course! The performances from everyone (except Natascha McElhone) are immersive. Particularly Ed Harris, who makes his character timelessly relevant.
This film will never stop being relevant, and not just for the obvious reasons. For me, it’s also a metaphor for battling depression. When you feel isolated and ignored and you unsuccessfully act out of character to remedy it, it’s one big ocean you need to cross before you can be your true self again.
