Philipp Schmerheim studies scepticism films as adaptations of philosophical ideas and thought experiments in contemporary cinema. These films focus on philosophical doubts regarding the way we interpret the world, with characters located in various misleading situations. Examples are the 'Matrix' trilogy, 'The Truman Show', 'Inception' and 'Vanilla Sky'.
