The Hidden Meaning in The Truman Show – Earthling Cinema

Greetings, and welcome to Earthling Cinema. I’m your host, Garyx Wormuloid. This week’s artifact is The Truman Show,
starring stand up turned impressionist turned comedic actor turned dramatic actor turned
comedic actor turned nihilist, Slim Carrey. The film follows loveable human male, Truman
Burbank, who knows a thing or two about sensible sweaters. What he doesn’t know is that he’s actually
on a reality show, cause who needs writers? Line!? (His town is a movie set…) His town is a movie set, and keeping with
Hollywood tradition, everyone is fake. Freaking up this freak show is tortured artist
Christoffopher, tortured because he wears a beret. To ensure Truman doesn’t get any crazy ideas,
like swimming, he makes Truman’s dad drink too much. Flash forward to the college years season
where Truman falls for a sexy librarian actress, and after some flirtatious running, she tells
him those three little words every guy wants to hear: everything’s a lie. Before Truman can say, “Yeah, I love you
too,” production intervenes and whisks her away to the H20 company, Fiji. Inconsolable beyond words, Truman marries
the next person he sees. But Truman can’t get her out of his head,
so Christoffer tries Birdman-ing him and it only makes things worse—I’m not really
sure how it could have helped. Truman starts noticing that his dead dad looks
a lot like the town’s only homeless guy, and more alarmingly, that someone has cancelled
his Sirius XM. Before you can say, “Ba ba boey,” Truman’s
skipping town, until Chrisoffpher pulls the old “there’s been a nuclear explosion,
so this one road is closed” trick. And like all my family road trips, it ends
in divorce. So Truman does his best Saddam impression
and hides. When the network can’t find him, they start
a humanhunt, cut transmission, and air reruns of “Technical Difficulties.” Christopher loses his ship, but immediately
finds Truman on it. He makes it rain, if you catch my drift. Since HBO still holds the rights to violent
death, they stop the storm and Truman breaks the fourth wall. Truman tries to punch his way through for
a hot sec, but gives up and goes for the fire exit instead. But Christoffer has another trick up his sleeve:
namely, a Samsung Galaxy Note. He fires up the P.A. system that’s been
there the whole time and asks Truman back for 6 more seasons and a movie. But Truman’s agents are sharks, and that’
just the nature of the ‘biz.’ The Truman Show begs the question, “To what
extent are we governed by some unseen, all-powerful force,” otherwise known as Disney’s The
Force. For Truman, it’s the latter, a state referred
to as theological determinism, but why you gotta put a label on things? Every aspect of Truman’s life, from what
he eats and wears is controlled by Christoffer. In fact, Christoffpher’s name is a variation
on “Christ.” As in Jesus Christ. Yeah, that Christ. Through most of the film, Truman struggles
to free himself from this system and make his own choices, only to find Christoffpher’s
flash mob, poised and ready to dance. The film frames this age-old debate in a 20th
century context, when most human lives were controlled by the media, instead of the chips
inside their brains. Truman is literally owned by a studio, well,
until the rights revert back to Marvel. His last name, “Burbank,” is a nod to
the Californian city where the Warner Bros used to do keg stands. As we watch Truman get ushered from product
to product by subtle advertising, we can’t help but notice the same attempts by the media
to groom our decisions. Not that I would ever tell you to buy Killmo’s
Eyebrow Wax, on sale now for 6000 glarbotrons. I just wouldn’t. Truman’s journey to discover the truth resembles
the thought experiment The Allegory of the Cave, by Plate o’ Spaghetti. The experiment imagines humans chained to
a wall, only knowing their shadows, more popularly known as a sex dungeon. Truman’s worldview is similarly constrained—his
“cave” is Seahaven; the actors are his “shadows”; and his hair is just perfect. Plate o’s supposed that once a prisoner ditched
the cave, he would prefer the outside world to the dark. Christof disagrees. But as the film climaxes, Truman calls him,
“a liar liar.” His perseverance to retire from showbiz is
reminiscent of Captain Ahab’s classic struggle with Moby Penis. Symbolically representing the struggle between
mankind and God, the novel ends in a good old-fashioned drowning, whereas Truman’s
ends in breathing. The final frames suggest that humans had the
will to control their own destiny, which was true, until President Kylie Jenner found out
about it. For Earthling Cinema, I’m Garyx Wormuloid. In case I don’t see you, good afternoon,
good solstice, and good night!

  1. I thought this movie was really good. Good acting. It was carried out well and the actors made the mostly non believable situation actually believable.

  2. omg i was just looking for a summary of the movie for our asignment WHICH WAS TO COMPARE THE TRUMAN SHOW TO PLATOS ALLEGORY OF THE CAVE OMG THANK U SO MUCH

    …one real (twisted)world version of the "librarian actress"…
    …as a grad student I once rented a room in a house from a young high school teacher on Truman St. in ABQ. He told me his grandfather was a preacher who convinced his flock once that the world would end on the day he calculated from scripture. Turns out it was the day I was born. Just my luck!

  4. The Secret Sects and Books of Religious and Occultist Orders:
    I declare, that it is written in the books of
    religion, and especially of those secret sects of it, that to establish a
    religion there need be written various writings of spirit world, of things
    unknowable, unforeseeable, and untold, of strange compounds, and of the species
    of the animal kingdom, the celestial heavens and stars, questions of the soul,
    of other worlds and beings, mathematics, musical spheres, or of the eternal
    nature of humans, as these are most mysterious to a man and not seeable and
    ungraspable, especially to the unhealthy or those ridden with addiction.
    These writings are generously helped with a backing of important or historical
    figures.  The writings must be of a formal sounding nature and bear the
    dates of history and references to other similar materials.  The
    mysterious, thus, is unprovable and eternal and cannot be disquieted and those
    with even a small grasp of their orders cannot bear the separation of their
    understandings, and that only the healthy and sane, or those of an inner circle,
    may guess at their lack of substantiation and mysticism.  The world has
    received a dangerous and articulate chain-letter, which is both grounded, and
    substantiated in history, and even those who have writ their own or who have
    glimpsed their writings and manuals cannot stop its progression, and as an army
    of Gets, or Glimpses, or Fresdeins, or Neophytes, cannot stand as a whole or
    entirety, to untell its orders, and that even writings in the Vatican or of the
    God of Judaism, known or unknown, hold themselves to this basic and not benign
    key and that those who have written of it nature, or witnessed its passing and
    high grounds cannot deny its reticence and know and as chain-letters and
    compilations of strange mystical items bearing no fact have an origin
    predating Jesus and have watched his cause unfold through generations.
    I welcome our newest member of the unseen…
    the magneticism and magneticians of communication and energy, and a bid for the unseen
    and hidden realm of the jeweler's anvil and torch, and processes of metalsmithing into the mystical unseen forces.

  5. "… keeping up with Hollywood tradition, everyone is fake."
    Nonetheless, refer to Baudrillard and his "SIMULACRA AND STIMULATION," and the concept of hyperreality, for a detailed understanding.

  6. bruh is it me or was this video just terrible? Like absolutely nothing new was added, the guy just described the movie. What was the HIDDEN MEANING? And the humor was not my style at all. Like Moby penis? seriously, even 2nd graders could make that joke man, come on…

  7. Mr TRUMAN was being gangstalked…..😣😣😣😣😣🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♀️

  8. That movie Sucked!
    The real hidden meaning is they're suggesting we're living inside a tremendous planetarium. With a Black Hole sun creating the Eclipse. A hole in the dome. Like the Sun flickering videos that battery is dying. Thousands saw it but I didn't. Sucks for me. And Chris? The guy exploiting the celebrities.
    The Greatest power they have…
    Is the ability to lie.

  9. I see a film full of TRANNIES, the creator made this world, there is no space and the earth is flat…….

  10. maybe this movie represent us like truman..that were living in a false world as we know it. . .that we were being controlled by the higher society to do what they wants us to do . . .well for me the most creepy part of this movie was credit scene..the music of credit scene..and producer of this film was a "ROTHSCHILD"…

  11. Thank you, this video helped a lot when my school started teaching philosophy on the credibility of testimony

  12. three things:
    1. the chips in ur HEADS have been actIvated (u ARE welcome)😳
    2. presuming Kylie wins next election, will I still have free will? this is fuCking confidence building 101train right here (i subscribed to ur channel btw) shoot, i might paint my toe nails REd!💅 LOVE u taytay! ❤❤❤❤❤
    3.🔥 I WORSHIP MOBEY PENIS🔥, but I call him either sexy kitty baby, Billy big balls, jimi don me NoW please!, Mr. Morrison (I know, so proper, right?), catfish cuddle billy, crawDADdy, yelawolf likes to bite me , Ouija MastErofmymind, NED my Bed, BUD!, or Voo?Doo! PuSSy #sLayeR depending on my mood and what shoes he is wearing. ❤.

  13. Earth is a soul trap a cosmic matrix construct, constructed created by highly intelligent highly advanced alien extraterrestrial beings and earth is an ancient alien scientific laboratory and the human race are the experiment, earth is an enclosed system where no one can leave earth not even in rockets, earth is much larger than humans were taught to believe, as long and wide is as deep where other alien races live, many thousands of years before bringing the human race to earth, they walk among you.
    Earth is a huge humungous mountainous realm and is a universe unto itself, it is not round nor flat but botanical garden with with thousands of all kinds of animals and humans are also animals in a zoo

  14. I also found that the only real thing for truman was that he fell in love, and so did she, meaning that in this world love is maybe the only real thing, that's not artificial or groomed like everything else truman sees

  15. Not really hidden,it's gangstalking,gaslighting….Be an ex convict,witness to a crime or be on workmans compensation and you will be Truman'd.

  16. Leave me alone! I don't want anything to do with you people anymore. You're liars. You set me up. Leave me alone.! Stop the games. I don't want anymore of your stupid CLUESm I want to go back to how I was. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!!!!

  17. The True man…has No choice…for a real choice = To know exactly what is going to happen through and the end outcome.

    Life is controlled and therefore takes away even more of the possibility for one to have a choice

  18. Christof name is Christ of as in Jesus, yes u covered that part. But what you didn’t think about was that Truman’s name is true man saying he’s the only true man living in seahaven

  19. When most human lives were controlled through media instead of the chip in their brain??????!????? anyone else heard that!!!!!!??????

  20. I was really looking forward to an intellectual analysis of the film. Thanks for shitting on the film with all the forced comedy. If i could even call it that.

  21. You missed the real point of this movie!!! This is our reality in a sense! EARTH IS FLAT AND HAS A DOME!!!!!!

  22. As we watch you living in abject bliss, you’re often oblivious to what your eyes miss. You may think fakes like nasa are correct but that’s just because you haven’t researched the effect. We tried to show you by editing the script, the problem is only a few of you noticed the glitch. As time passes, the truth will reveal itself, most are just too stupid to see beyond the felt. Don’t fear memories or ignore how you feel, you’ll soon realise the illusion is very real. Gl
