The films on this week’s list all deal with characters whose notion of reality differs from the conventional. They may have been raised with this reality (Brigsby Bear, The Truman Show) or develop it at a later point in life (Network, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind). Either way, it makes for interesting cinema.
