The is merely a deception of own

The Truman Show is a (1998)
satirical science fiction film, starring actor Jim Carrey playing character
Truman Burbank. (2017). The film depicts a series of
fateful events, a phoney town, full of actors and fake lives; enclosed in a
giant dome there are high-tech simulations that enforce a nonstop telethon of
‘reality’. (2017). The premise of the film is how man involuntarily
carries out a life within this dystopian world, unaware that his entire life is
a reality show that is broadcasted 24/7, Truman slowly begins to unravel the
horrible truth. As the rest of humanity watch him go from “one staged situation
into another, the audience enjoy a little pathos and vicarious emotion”, (ref) of
a character who is to delusional to challenge the mass world of media-politics.

 cultural theorist Guy Debord states ‘The
Society of the Spectacle’, “traces the development of a modern society through
a collection of thesis, that discuss the authentic social life that has been
replaced with its representation of the spectacle”. (ref) Thesis 6 of the book
mentions that ‘understood in its totality, the spectacle is both the outcome
and the goal of the dominant mode of production. It is not something added to
the real world. On the contrary it is the very heart of society’s real
unreality” (Debord 1967). Thus, does the movie offer us a metaphor for own
situation. Especially today, where Hollywood filmmaking has provided us with
commentary on reality and free will, it’s a common part of the everyday now to
be paranoid about having this fear of being watched by the government on our
digital devices. The fake landscape in which Truman Is situated in is merely a
deception of own media landscape that is formed of news, politics, advertising
and public affairs increasingly made up of theatrical illusions that propagate
the mass media. “In all its specific manifestations – news or propaganda,
advertising or the actual consumption of entertainment- the spectacle epitomizes
the prevailing model of social life” – (Debord 1967). Debords theory and the
moral of the movie, routinely take towards media. In one aspect, we are
absorbed by it; and we accept the rendition of reality as we are occupied by
its view (the view in which the media impose).  The media have fabricated our attitudes, we
frequently experience this ‘real unreality’ (ref) through reading news stories
and watching television, movies break down from this illusion we mist however,
set ourselves away from this media landscape ‘prevailing us from social’
affairs’  (Debord 1967). It is apparent
the movie is of course a form of media depicting a “pseudo norm”(ref) of
reality, yet we are consumed by its own take on the meaning of things. The
movie mass communicates the exploitation of what the media is capable of and
its willingness to parade as well as victimise, humans just for newsworthy
events for a
