"Man in the Box"
Directed by Luis Alberto Pereira
Luis Alberto Pereira takes on the omnipresence of television in this
comedy that puts a darker spin on the themes of The Truman Show and
EdTV (and predates both films by several years). A freak lightning
accident makes the life of an unsuspecting TV technician the subject of a
24-hours-a-day broadcast, disrupting his family life and seducing him with
the power of the media. Portuguese with English subtitles.
