The Matrix

Andy Wachowski, Larry Wachowski / US, AU, 1999 / 136 min.

In 1999 Lana and Lilly Wachowski broke through big time with The Matrix. Their mix of action, dystopian SF and philosophical reflections on what is real and what is fake seemed an awkward selling point in advance. On the eve of the new millennium with its attendant fears about a world that might spin out of control, however, the Wachowski’s bold venture hit the mark. Now, in 2019, in these times of fake news and deep fake technology, the film again touches a sensitive nerve: who or what can we still trust?
