saw the truman show today, it was excellent. normally i'm a sucker for anything existentialist but this was definitely a stand-out. it makes you think ~ not just "am i the unwitting star in an elaborate reality tv show ?" but of the wider implications.
sometimes we, too, feel trapped in a familial and social world to which we try to conform but can't completely identify with. the world that we create for ourselves and others create for us ~ we can change it whenever we are ready.
