Caveh Zahedi , who you might remember as the Holy Moment guy in Richard Linkater's philosophical trippy animated masterpiece Waking Life has his own show now. While its called The Show about the Show , its actually a show about the previous episode of the show and what took place in the making of that episode. Caveh is painfully honest , with the viewer, whom he directly addresses and confesses to , whether its about having a crush on a fellow co-star or the fact that he thinks about another woman when he sleeps with his wife. Since his wife is also a cast member and no doubt watches the show herself, Caveh is confessing all this to her as well. It is a truly unique experience to observe . I could not recommend this highly enough. In the words of Hunter Thompson- When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. And,as it turns out , Caveh is quite the pro .
