Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. The Wachowskis. 1999, 136 mins. 35mm. With Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss. Take the red pill or the blue pill. Either way you will still get to enjoy Lilly and Lana Wachowski’s epochal cyberpunk sci-fi film, which, in telling the story of a computer programmer named Neo who is privileged to see the world beneath our world, revolutionized action filmmaking for the coming millennium. With its cool style, slow-motion “bullet time” signature, and pop-existential themes, The Matrix spawned sequels and parodies, but nothing came close to repeating the power of the original.
