Anyone watched that film? Does it ring a bell?

Barely. But I've heard of the Truman Show Delusion, where a guy thought he was being constantly filmed as if he were on a show.

That is what almost everybody does, almost all the time. I call it ego.

I did. It's an awesome movie. I love the symbolism of movies where the main character discovers and overcomes a delusion. The triumph of reason and freedom.

I loooove that movie!
i kinda had a problem like that when i was little, i used to have a suspicion that i was the only "real" person, and that everyone else turned into goblins or devils when i left the room and that they were just acting when i was with them...i've always had trouble letting my imagination get away from me. i used to really freak myself out that way.i would like sneak up around corners and barge into rooms to take people by surprise and catch them in there goblin form, but i obviously never did so i came to the conclusion that they all had their own thoughts and feelings, dreams and fears which was almost harder to imagine for me.
in conclusion i was a creepy little kid.

That was a great movie. Jim Carrey was great in it, one of his better roles. I've seen it a few times over the years.
