We do this. 

“When we approve of the reality of a film, we are really affirming our comfort with it; our desire to accept what we see.” – Robert Kolker “Film, Form, and Culture” 

We do this with more than just film. We do this with every story. Including the real life tales people often tell us about themselves. It is part of human nature. We weigh the authenticity of a human life, judge it to be real or fake, then go on with our lives after having cast our judgement. 

Why? 

Because we like to think we are God.
