    Truman had almost no privacy, very little freedom, and was psychologically abused. It is obvious that Truman did not enjoy his constant surveillance because one of the only views he shared Christof was, "You never had a camera in my head.". The only privacy Truman had was his thoughts, which made him feel incredibly violated and drew him to insanity. The production chose "to manufacture ways to keep Truman in Seahaven" by psychologically torturing and playing mind games with him. As the days…

However, he instead found a way out of his “staged” life and into a real one. Having a sacramental worldview means you see things as…
