The advanced
ways technology and the media have both effectively mass communicated
information and entertainment, has impacted a worldwide spectacle that reflects
on daily life of society. Amongst the entertainment industry, cultural products
come in the forms of television, radio, magazines, films and the internet, the
media influences our societal attitudes has implicated personas of all
kinds.  This dissertation aims to analyse
a selection of films that stage as fiction starting to emerge in our
contemporary world, and challenge our perception of reality. The fine line
between fact and fiction has always been complicated however, on some level the
truth being humanity and the fiction being what we imagine; intangible thoughts
all somewhat coexist in the shaping of social culture. I compiled several
studies that I thought best define the shift from the authentic world we live
in now to the illusion of the outside world that contemporary society seeks, I
also looked at how their studies have manifested through films we watch today
such as science fiction where we have some insight of the outlook on our
future, and the behaviours in society. The discussion of these issues is contemplated
thoroughly in this study.
