In terms of execution, the film doesn’t falter, utilising a wide variety of camera and shot angles to mimic a reality television format, and the scenes showing the viewers of the show discussing their favourite moments, how they keep it on at night for company, and the interview with ‘televisionary’ Christoph (Ed Harris) essentially playing God with someone’s life all adds to the overall effect. This raises the question of whether its right to do this to someone, locking them away for their entire life, but giving them a seemingly idyllic but fully controlled one instead. And if it were wrong, would that stop you from watching it? Its scary to think, but if this happened in real life, there would probably be more people glued to their television screens in fascination than there would be protesting.
