By now, I realize there are a couple of good movies that help to understand the situation a JW finds himself in, once he finds out the truth about "the Truth". Like: The Village, The Island, Stepford Wifes. I find that these movies help me to understand the situation of being trapped in a cult and the mixed emotions about finding out and the courage and strenght needed to leave. Some are better than others doing this job of "self-recognization". I found one more:
"The Truman Show" (1998 with Jim Carrey). You might like or dislike Jim Carrey, but in this movie he does a totally different role than the usual slapstick comedy type of thing. See this link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120382/
If you haven't seen this movie, you might not understand this comments. Here comes a *SPOILER*:
Once the main character finds out that he's living in an artificial world, that the sky and limits of the sea, are cardboard and painted. He realizes with shock that nothing in his life was ever real. All his friends and even family members where paid actors....it is sad and dramatic to see this movie now, through this "lense" of awareness! It helps to step out of yourself and see what has been going on with your life...
What do you think about this movie? Any thoughts? Have you seen other good movies that are a good analogy to the WTBTS?
