Reality in the Truman Show

- We live each day of our lives without questioning the life around us. We have an innate belief, or faith in our world, and our reality. In the film The Truman Show, the lead character, Truman Burbank, is born and raised in a mock reality. He grows up having faith that his world is reality, and never questions it. He grows up in a world where his destiny is controlled, but not fake. These concepts and more lead to an inevitable question: Is Truman's world imaginary. It is nearly impossible to define imaginary versus reality, and it is for this reason that one must approach this question from a different angle....   [tags: Film]

Analysis Of The Movie ' The Truman Show '

- The Truman Show engenders question on the authenticity of behavior and virtue in the face of pervasive voyeurism(which I will refer to in an exclusively non sexual manner). The Truman Show expostulates that an unaware participant in this perverted voyeurism, no matter the level of cognizant awareness, is still inauthentic because of the pervasive manipulation by Cristof and his cronies and the willing deception by Truman Show 's costars. These factors engender a contrived scenario that forces Truman to act in an expected manner—rather than natural--much like the intrusive Mr....   [tags: Reality television, The Truman Show]
