Abstract

The Truman Show is a 1998 American drama,the plot of which follows the life of a man named Truman who was unaware that his life has been completely constructed by a producer named Christof in a reality television show for the past 30 years. When skepticism arises, Truman grows suspicious of what he perceived as "reality" for his entire life and he seeks out his own internal strength to ultimately escape the “media bubble” he lives in. Consisting of five chapters, this paper mainly discussed the the alienation theme in The Truman Show through the analysis of the alienation of different characters and most importantly, the resistance of the protagonist, Truman himself. First and foremost, the introduction of the film and the background of the film creation are presented followed by the analysis of the alienation. Through the elements of director, performers, and spectators, it is intended to interpret how the behaviors of the so-called actors are trying to control the life of Truman. And most significantly, the process of the protagonist’s resistance is analyzed as well as a response of the alienation in The Truman Show. This research would be helpful to better understand the characters in the film from the perspective of alienation theme.
Key words: alienation; resistance; control

摘要

《楚门的世界》是一部1998部美国电影,故事情节主要讲述的是主人翁楚门的生活,而他从不知道,在过去30年中他的生活是由一个名叫克里斯托夫的制片人所构建的真人秀节目而已。当众多异化疑点出现时,楚门对他一生中所认为的“现实”产生怀疑,最终他用自己的内在力量以摆脱他所身在其中的“媒体泡沫”。本文共分五章,主要通过分析不同人物的异化,重点分析主人公楚门本人的反抗,探讨电影中中的异化主题。首先介绍了电影的背景和电影创作的背景,接着分析电影的具体异化表现。通过导演,演员和观众等元素,分析楚门生活中所谓的演员,他们的行为是如何控制和影响楚门的生活的。最重要的是,本文分析了电影中具体异化的表现,以及主人公反抗的过程。本文的研究将有助于从异化主题的角度更好地理解电影中的人物形象。

Chapter 1 Introduction
The Truman show is about a man called Truman who has been filmed all his life. This part mainly analyzed the research background, purpose and significance as well as the research status abroad and at home.
1.1 Research background
The Truman Show, a comedy/ drama was directed by Peter Weir (nominee for Best Director in 1998, Academy Awards). The film was scripted by Andrew M. Niccol, including last years "Gatttaca," a similarly themed tale, Niccol delivers optimism and affection for the human condition.
Actually, Truman's (or Christof's) world is a derivative of 1950's America as idealized by television of that period-- safe, sane, saccharine. His life follows a strictly plotted, mundane trajectory, "birth-school-work-death" punctuated by equally preplanned maudlin moments-- Truman takes his first steps, Truman meets his first love, Truman gets married. Deviations from the plan occur only when the human and mechanical clockwork of Sea Haven breaks down, and these the cast and crew of the show gloss over as quickly as they can. Appropriately, Truman makes his living selling insurance in this world in which virtually every event is predictable.
As the media is changing our world in one way or another, the film is not only an unique plot for people to enjoy, but also a object to reflect from the perspective of alienation.
1.2 Research purpose and significance
Composed of five chapters, this paper mainly discussed the the alienation theme in The Truman Show through the analysis of the alienation of different characters and most importantly, the resistance of the protagonist, Truman himself. First and foremost, the introduction of the film and the background of the film creation are presented followed by the analysis of the alienation. Through the elements of director, performers, and spectators, it is intended to interpret how the behaviors of the so-called actors are trying to control the life of Truman. And most significantly, the process of the protagonist’s resistance is analyzed as well as a response of the alienation in The Truman Show. 转载请注明来源。原文地址:http://www.lw54.com/html/zhlw/20181107/7927100.html
