This is a surprisingly good and introspective film about the cult of personality and celebrity culture. How selfishly we project our hopes, dreams, ideals and latent desires onto the people we see on TV and hear on the radio; people we've never met and don't even know. It must be lonely being famous --everyone thinks they know who you are when they don't really know you at all.
