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 show starts at 8pm. The time was 7:30, I was just leaving the house, and it was raining. My wife and I had to hurry because it would take almost all of 30 minutes to get to the “The Boogie Woogie Christmas Show”. Feeling pressured to get to the show on time I started to feel frustrated.
