Negative Space: The Matrix
- The Adjustment Bureau
- A potentially great movie, The Adjustment Bureau devolves into a chase and a cheap love story in the final third of the film. It’s as if they ended the first Matrix movie with Trinity and Neo settling down in the suburbs of the Matrix.
- The Matrix
- Wow! People are already talking about this movie as the new Star Wars, and they may not be wrong; the future will decide. It has all the right elements: action, story, mythical heroes, perhaps an overemphasis on the messiah bit, but otherwise a kick-ass movie.
- A savior, for people who don’t want to be saved
- The Matrix sequels and V for Vendetta had the same problem: how do you make a movie about a savior? It’s not something Hollywood really believes in.
- Matrix End of your world
“I am going to show them a world… without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world… where anything is possible. Where we go from there, is a choice I leave to you.”
