Other movies like Matrix, characters living within virtual reality generated by a computer, and Dark City, where inhabit a huge mock in the form of city which is, ultimately, the perverse dream of an alien race. Scenario unrealistic naif from the Truman Show presented at the search for reality, in the end all the protagonists seek a reality that has been artificially made to control them. and you need to find the truth behind the illusory reality and as they say the critics: his discovery is equivalent or leads to an act of rebellion, of contempt for the established order, The Matrix has in common with the Show the notion that, in a sense, the simulation is more real than reality itself. There are who finds similarities in the situation that describes the film with the well-known thesis about Hyperreality exposed by Jean Baudrillard and other scholars of the culture from the end of the 1970s. The Hyperreality appears in a culture When weakens the opposition that separates the real from the imaginary, the simulation of the original. The real and the imaginary do not exist but Baudrillard – type at a certain distance. What happens when such distance, even that separates the real from the imaginary, start to disappear and be absorbed by the model only? The answer is that we enter a world ruled by the beginning of the simulation, where real and model have exchanged their positions, and where the reality is which is subject to the model. An illustration of this phenomenon is Baudrillard in the work of Philip K.

Dick, where the universe described is not possible or impossible, is not real or unreal. It is hyperreal. It is a universe of simulation, which is something entirely different. They have some theorists have challenged the theories of Baudrillard, not the fact that a part of the world is moving into an era of drills, but the assertion that has been effectively cleared the border between reality and simulation of film criticism.
