The Truman Show dvd
PAGE 2
More recently, after the 1998 release of The Truman Show (in which Jim Carrey plays a man who is unaware that his whole life is being filmed for TV), Joel Gold, MD, an attending psychiatrist at Bellevue Hospital in New York, began treating five men "who all had a very specific kind of delusion where they felt that they were the subject of a reality show much like in the movie." When Gold began to talk about his cases in professional circles, he heard of several others, and last year doctors writing in The British Journal of Psychiatry dubbed the phenomenon the Truman syndrome.
