He is the God of his own little world, he directly tells all what to do in his world, and he brings millions of people together around the world for one man, and his name is Christof. In the movie The Truman Show Truman is living in a world where everyone knows his life is shown on worldwide television but him. He lives in a giant dome created by a man named Christof. He is also the director of the Show. He could be looked at as the god of this small world he created because he controls everything that goes on inside the set and he basically rules out Truman and the actor’s lives for them. Even though the viewers enjoy watching the show a lot of the viewers don’t really know Christof and they might have some questions about his viewpoints and motives.

I think Christof is in this business for self accomplishment and not greed.

Many people have different perspectives on the moral status of the show. Some people think it is great that Truman is in a safe place and living a good happy life without all the evil in the real world. Others think that what Christof is doing is
