This Twitter Thread Shows The Astounding Attention To Detail In 'The Truman Show'

It's been over 20 years since The Truman Show hit cinemas but its relevance is seen now more than ever. The film's prescient view of the public's strange obsession with the private details of celebrities' lives rings true more today than it did at the time of the movie's release in 1998. It's also now available to stream on Netflix so there are a hell of a lot of people enjoying it of late.

It's an incredible movie in many different ways. It has predicted so much, most notably the onslaught of reality TV that took hold during the 21st century. Today, anyone with a social media account stars in their own reality show through tweets, Instagram photos and Facebook statuses. The Truman Show even envisioned the scope of product placement on TV that would be the case in years to come. Furthermore, The United States have a literal reality TV star as president.

Attention to Detail

Aside from its accurate predictions of a grim world obsessed with the ins and outs of strangers' lives, the attention to detail in The Truman Show is phenomenal. There are countless hidden easter eggs, tiny details and blink-and-you-miss-it moments that add something special to the movie.
