CAM (2018) Ending Explained and Algorithm Theory!

I sound like a crazy person in this video, lol. Also, forget to mention one of the dudes in the chat room is named "Mad_Hatter" and she has a cat that looks like some of the renditions of the Cheshire Cat from "Alice in Wonderland."

another tiny but standout detail, the email Alice uses to try and sign up for as another model but then gets rejected as her ID already being on file is cheshirekitten - just another thing added onto the pile of Alice in Wonderland easter eggs

Think Story No you really don’t sound crazy, your points are valid & see my comment below about what I noticed my first viewing IMMEDIATELY once I saw it on screen. I legit sat there for like 30 minutes rewinding on Netflix to pretty much every scene I thought relevant to verify I’d found something flashed quickly at the end but turned out to substantiate the entire point of the film.

It’s the creators/owns of the site that are stealing the identities. When Alice called customer service she mentioned they take 50% of what she makes, by having a bot do the show they get 100% ..Tinker guy was friends with all of them just like the creater of Facebook was on FB. Alice also mentioned he was a programmer or something like that during her first FaceTime conversation with him in the beginning of the movie.

so is the real Lola living in the real world or a made up world ? because i still dont get how she got a video game that came out in 2016 when she is living in 2014 and how did the dates kept changing in random order and what she was wearing kept changing. she was talking to real people and going places so i dont get how it worked

i thought while watching it that the movie would end up with her waking up from the hospital after passing out with vibratron and all what happened was just a dream. it would have been a bad final but that was the only logic explaination to everything. then the movie finished and i said wtf

Exactly. I could add that Alice (new AI cam girl bot) is being tested specifically for its self-awareness ability. The previous version was not self-aware, it was its greatest design flaw. The new version is self-aware enough to know how it/she looks like, feel, wants, but not enough that she is her-self an AI bot.

Here's my theory: I believe this movie is a modern day rendition of Alice in Wonderland. In this case though, "wonderland" is actually an online life. It shows how one can get so caught up in a life online that you lose touch with what's real life and what's just a fake persona. Her name is Alice, she lives on Wonderdale street. The first username she uses to confront the AI is Mad_Hatter, then it's MrTeapot. When she confronts the AI in the end, she's in a red heart bra, like the queen of hearts. The second movie to Alice in Wonderland is Alice Through the Looking Glass, and she confronts the AI in the end through a mirror. And to be honest, there may not even be an AI, it may just be Alice losing her mind in wonderland. This is why nothing makes sense in the movie, none of the dates or distances add up and there's just excessive discrepancies. Nothing makes sense... on purpose. Because it's "wonderland". Also, this may be a stretch, but she meets Barney at a hotel at 666 Bradley Blvd, and then Barney's Hardware is on Elm St, like The Nightmare on Elm Street. Could be connected to how in the Disney movie of Alice in Wonderland, it's shown at the end that she was just dreaming the whole time.

They are not mistakes. What you see is a virtual environment designed to test AI cam girl bots. Alice is just a new version put against an old version. The dates, distances, clothes are just programming bugs in this environment. Alice (the new AI bot) failure to notice all these timeline issues suggests that it/her “understanding” of time, dates, distances is also buggy.

+Chris Navas I understand your point. But I believe there is something between : - Holding the viewer by the hand - Explaining nothing, opening the door to fancy theories. I feel like this is a cop out from the writers, who don't know how to end their story so they let the viewer do their job

The first time I watched this movie I immediately caught the bizarre dates on her NEW driver’s license, which I figured was a continuity error. I rewinded to when we saw her original license in the middle of the film (when she’s trying to make a new account after getting locked out by the algorithm clone), and THOSE dates & numbers etc. are screwed up. Of course her name is different at the end because she’s aware of identity theft etc., but even her height & weight are listed differently on each driver’s license — and keep in mind her original license was issued when she was 21 years old (that’s when you get a horizontal license in AZ & N.M. to prove you’re 21, while 16-21 year olds have vertical licenses but I digress...) — so how has her height changed from when she was 21 to however old she is at the end of the film? Lol These conflicting numbers about dates, identity, addresses, or whatever basic information are literally as much of the plot as the narrative. It’s thematically about many things, including how easy it is to conflate someone’s digital footprint & digital profile with their REAL characteristics. It’s about what happens when you become your digital-self IRL, or what happens when someone discloses your personal life either online or IRL without your knowledge or consent, you guys should get the picture by now because for how great this film is subtlety is not its strong suit when delivering its message lol.

+João Afonso actually I would call her that more like stupid. I mean not once did she try to reach out for help that made sense. She didn't even do one rational thing. -You know someone who works in i.t and says they know something about what's happening tase them and runaway -your brother was fine with you doing the show and now he is upset when his friends find out which would not be hard when she is trying to be top girl doing outrageous stuff like cutting her throat -you see an article about the top girl being dead and you don't look into anyone else in the top 50 -your friend acts like she seen the show and but gets upset over it. -you don't try to use your ID as a way to get into your account with customer service. -the website has no problems with grotesque violence that would get them shut down faster than the vox can call pewdiepie a nazi -your rival let's you come into their place of work and help you but than tries to take you out and you don't confront them. -you don't ask the guy who meets the girls any questions. Like who cares about times and dates this movie is so ridiculous unfinished and rush that you can't telle it's good unless you are just looking at boobs and or one person explains these parts like they over look these for silly bull. Like no theory makes sense when the main character makes no sense not even Alice and wonderland was that stupid, or the kids in nightmare on elm Street they at least weren't fucking brain dead.

Explain me how that shit is a good film. You have just seen a short summary about this film where you see successive failures of notion of time, a random wardrobe, and the unrealistic discussion about artificial intelligence that is in development and far from resembling the AI depicted in the film… I mean, it just a netflix original non-sense film which tells us a story about a whore girl who earns cash doing prostituting for internet; who was caught, without anyone knowing how, through the unrealistic explanation of an AI that is in development and still doesn´t exist nowadays like the way described on the film...
