The Truman Show
The Truman Show (1998) is a kind of cinematic chimera. It's part comedy, part drama, straddling the line between science fiction and modern-day fairy tale. Set in a fictional world where the most popular show is a 24-hour-feed of a single, painfully average guy, there's nothing blatantly predictive about the movie. But like The Running Man before it, it's hard to deny the impact The Truman Show has had on pop culture, and especially on TV producers. Arriving just before the explosion of reality television, the intentionally over-the-top story still echoes today. Purchased by a corporation as an infant, Truman's entire life has been a televised lie, with millions watching every one of his manufactured tragedies and triumphs. Mostly, though, Truman simply lives, and the show's popularity is its straightforward voyeurism. And, like Big Brother, Survivor, and every other reality show on the air, none of his environment is actually real.
