The Truman Show
The Truman Show The Truman Show is a profoundly disturbing movie. On the surface, it deals with the worn out issue of the intermingling of life and the media.

Death and The Maiden The Polanski film Death and the Maiden is a wonderful and intelligent interpretation of Ariel Dorfman?s human rights problem play.

The main theme of the play is an extremely personal one for both playwright (and scriptwriter) and director. Both Dorfman and Polanski have had to face and flee the horrors of dictatorship and human rights violations: Dor
