8. THE TRUMAN SHOW (1998)

Even the most boring of guys deserve their own privacy. But for Jim Carrey’s character, Truman Burbank, in Peter Weir’s The Truman Show, solitude is a no-go. It’s not that he’s such an interesting person, either; friendly and law-abiding, Truman walks through life obeying the rules and doing very little that should captivate the millions of viewers watching his life being simulcast as a reality TV show, without his knowledge. The thought of our every moves being seen by the same amount of suckers that religiously tune into The Real Housewives Of Cougarville is damn creepy. What goes on behind one’s bedroom’s closed doors should be his or her own business, especially when after hours programming begins on cable movie channels. God forbid some innocent little kid channel-surfed onto that.
