Here is a link to "The Truman Show" if you have never seen the movie. Highly suggested.
Long story short
Truman(Jim Carey) was adopted as a baby by a TV Show. They captured his whole life on film, without him knowing. The movie is about his slow
realization that everything around him... isn't what it seems.
Lets jump right in:
Truman is about to go to work, when a light falls from the sky. Confused, he goes to check it out.
The light says "Sirius" which is the brightest star in our night sky. Sirius also is another name for Satan.
This falling star is what begins to wake Truman up to the false world around him.
Truman continues to find clues throughout the movie, like seeing his dead father alive. I would cover these, but its more fun to watch the movie.
Above is a picture of the dome Truman is living in.
A dome, equipped with stars, sun, moon, water, land, and people. All for Truman,without his knowledge, while a whole world exists on the outside.
The clues overwhelm Truman, so he decides to sail out to sea as far as he can in search of truth....until his boat hits a huge, false wall.
Amazed and confused Truman examines the fake wall. For some reason, the filmmakers wanted to show him "walking on water" in the above scene.
Why a Jesus Christ reference? Did they cast Jim Carey because his initials were J.C like Jesus Christ?
Whats weirder, is the "director" of Trumans fake life is named: Christof.
This could either mean Christ-off, or Of-Christ.
The town Truman lives in, is called: Seahaven. Which rearranges to As-Heaven.
Overall, there is a big religious undertone to Trumans "awakening". Why? Are they trying to tell us something?
Fake stars, fake moon? Actors posing as people, intricate surveillance, cover-ups, even using FEAR tactics to keep Truman from traveling outside of
Seahaven....they thought of it all.
Could our "planet" be in a similar situation? Controlled weather, sun, space, actors, FEAR, etc?
Could there be a huge amount of people living outside our world? If there was any answer to where all these young dead celebrities are going......an
outside world would make sense.
WE are The Truman Show.
(Last but not least, i love to throw in a little pre-9/11 reference. This is a poster Truman looks at when he tries to book a flight to Fiji. Of
course, no flights were available...)
