Post Re: What Matrix?
Most movies from Hollywood function to brainwash us, but I suspect The Matrix is a rare exception that somehow escaped detection by the ruling sociopaths. Or perhaps they wanted to enhance their "duping delight" by teasing us with the truth. The movie is such a powerful eye-opener that you have to wonder which, if either, might be the truth.

I remember the first time I watched it, and how I felt at the end. I was stunned by the honesty that was just behind the façade of the "fictional" story. I just sat there, realizing that I had just seen a film unlike any other I had ever seen or studied. It was a work of genius, of incredible art, of deep commitment and honesty. I had reacted similarly after my first viewing of "The Shining", "Clockwork Orange", and "2001", though at a less intense degree. Only Stanley Kubrick had made films at this level of intensity, and here was a creator (the Wachowski brothers) that had surpassed the master himself.

It's not that we can't handle the truth. It's that they can't handle us if we know the truth.
