So, have you seen the movie Surrogates? (Warning: It is a little risque, if you are sensitive to such things!)
Hubby and I rented it and I must say, it creeped me out! Mainly because it seemed to mimic what’s already happening in America today! All the “perfect” people who wanted to look their very best – it was like looking at all the botox faces in Hollywood!
But it seemed to go deeper than that…as I reflected on all the faces I pass every day I thought of how many of us wear our “masks” and pretend all is well. We strive to look good on the outside to shield the world from the pain we have on the inside. Add to that the fact that more and more people are creating the facade of themselves they want to portray through blogs, facebook, twittering…and we may just be heading towards a world of surrogate selves!
More and more we are existing in a society where we can hide who we really are and present ourselves to the world in the way we wish we were.
I don’t have all the answers…I just know what I saw portrayed in the movie Surrogates seems to be happening and that is creepy true to me!
What do you think?
