The Hidden Meaning in The Truman Show – Earthling Cinema

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!

  • richard bello

    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

  • Flo Smith

    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

  • fun only fun

    Awesome movie

  • sadetwizelve

    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.

    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

  • Ashish nayaka

    His Name Is Jim Carrey Not Slim Carrey 😐…….

  • Emmie_Epic

    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

  • Apocalypto

    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

  • Paul Inman

    Well that was crap.

  • Fui Gebhardt1

    I literally just today commented on someone else's video "I hear at least 2 misuses of the phrase 'beg the question' daily on YouTube". You no-shit just filled that quota for me today. I hope there's not a 3rd.


    I mean yeah this is interesting but why not talk about what would happen after leaves. His psychological identity. His fears and phobias. How he could or would survive outside of that world. Touched on it but why not go deeper? How the world really works and how he thinks he'll fit or not.

  • Max Troy

    The eyebrows are so fucking annoying

  • littleNightK

    that dude have been waiting 3 years to see this

  • Bllury Face

    This video is also fake, it was scripted. Just watch it the second time.

  • 쿠쿠망고

    Oh incase I don’t see ya
    Good afternoon
    Good evening
    Good night

  • Electro Static


  • theunpossiblefile

    And if I don’t see ya, good evening good morning and good night. Did I get that right?

    Welcome to just-in-time Truman Show SIM reality that the DSM crowd call paranoid delusion. Sounds impressive doesn’t it? But is it right or true, false or wrong? Or do we leave it to the Big Brother P-doc secular priesthood to decide? Big mistake.

  • Ehsan Najafi

    the lame attempted sarcasm is really annoying and makes the essay incoherent


    It's not uncommon for 25+ year prisoners that have left jail to reoffend to be returned to the safety of there jail cell , as the real world is cold & frightening to them. Some even commit suicide not long after they are released. I imagine trueman would end up killing himself after the talk shows have finished interviewing the most famous person on earth.

  • Christina

    Yeah… something is up. Because it's TOO many coincidences…how is it that I blackout occured at the hotel promptly at 8pm. Ok fine, but I also get a text message from my job at the same time, then hear on the radio it's "the blackout Saturday night jam session." Or something like that. Its too many coincidences.

  • Christina

    Yeah I'll admit I overthink maybe a lot of things but…too many strange things.

  • Christina

    It's just that the police officers don't know themselves! That's got to be it!

  • Christina

    They know we're being tracked but they haven't connected everything. Why would I get phone calls once I get in the shower? A computer does that?? I don't get it…everyday for a week, I would get a phone call once I got In the shower.

  • Christina

    I see…it's a little bit of everything. It is like a computer diary. With connections. That explains some of the confusion.

  • Christina

    Yeah…there's definitely some hacking too. Yep. I figured it out!

  • Christina

    You would have to pay attention. The more someone pays attention, the more they figure it out. It all depends on the level of attentiveness. Got it…

  • Christina

    Truman figured it out by paying attention.

  • Dharmesh immortal

    1:24 so fuckin True 🤣🤣

  • Tol Tol

    If u wanna see part 2 go watch the matrix

  • Brendan. Greally

    a bit a tosh here about "Christoppher" being "Christ". I was honoured to sit next to the writer Mark Nicols at Victoria Uni, Wellington. Christoppher is definitely no analogy of Christ. While Mark is not religious his big concern is authoritarianism, whether capitalistic or communist. He is aware that only 6% of New Zealand Society is religious.. religions have such little influence in public life – so why would he think that the religions are the great big web?

    Christof is an anagram for the Fo Christ aka Fake Christ.

  • Eli S. Ramirez

    This a very superficial analysis.

    Real life parents have become the corporation that used and abused Truman all to get followers and a fanbase! People are willing to do whatever for attention including watching someone get hurt and recording the incident yet don't lift a finger to actually help out!

    This was uploaded on my birthday.

  • Flat Earth Socialist

    The hidden meaning is obvious: The earth is flat. All of humanity is in a huge Trumam show stage. The outer boundaries of this flat earth is not a man made wall like in The Truman Show, but rather the natural physical 360degree icebarrier that completely surrounds us. An outermost ring barrier known as ANTARCTICA. It is not a continent at the bottom of a ball. It is the outermost reaches of our flat earth. That's why it's so heavily guarded by the UN Antarctic Treaty. The world elites are hiding the final barrier. The firmament dome. The termination point. Hiding the fact that the earth is flat and stationary. Hiding God. Out in the furthest reaches of Antarctica, there exists a final wall of ice reaching up into the sky as high as you can imagine. And this barrier cannot be crossed or drilled through. It exists in the coldest, darkest environment possible. The sun cannot penetrate this area. And there are constant ice hurricanes of up to 300 miles per hour. God has created this natural barrier. We humanoids cannot escape this place. There is no outerspace. We cannot get out through the sides because of Antarctica. We cannot go into any "outerspace" because a physical barrier of liquid helium-4 in its superfluid state exists as a dome over us and it starts at 300,000 feet high. And obviously we cannot penetrate the ground. The deepest hole drilled is 8 miles. By the Russians. The sun and moon rotate above us. They are both the same size. The sun is God's lightbulb. The sun is not fire. The sun is an electromagnetic conductor and produces light at different times across the earth by using its properties as a single diode focal point from which to reflect and refract light and heat through the layers of the firmament. The moon is plasma. The tides are caused by electromagnetic energy in the aether. The North Pole Sea is a whirlpool of energy and suction. NASA is a branch of the evil American military. It exists for mind control only. When people see rocket launches at Cape Canaveral, FL, they have to watch from 2 miles away. They THINK they are seeing a heavy rocket take off into space. In reality they are being tricked. They are seeing a huge helium balloon all painted up to mimic a rocketship. Think of how slow it lifts off the ground. As slow as a helium balloon. They let that helium balloon start going up and then provide you with a fancy firework show beneath it. And all you idiots think it's a rocket going to space. In reality they take off, go vertical, get high up, then go horizontal, then when it's out of your view, it starts descending to the Atlantic Ocean. And yet all you adults who should know better..all of you clap and cheer like a bunch of little children when you see this nonsense…this brainwashing. Wake up!!! YT channels to wake your stupid asses up: "PLANATE VERITAS", "waykiwayki", "Eric Dubay", "Globebusters".
    I'll be happy to debate ANY physicist on these issues. Bring it on!

    Dude you try WAY too hard to be funny. Like some of the shit you say sounds interesting and I would like to research it to learn more, but you're too busy mispronouncing stuff on purpose trying to be funny. It's just annoying as fuck though. It's ok to say SOME funny things, but if it's all the time and makes no sense then it is really annoying. Also what the fuck is up with the eyebrows? You don't have to try THAT hard to be funny. You're doing WAY too much.
