Philosophy and the Matrix – Return to the Source

  • Published 3 years ago

This is one of the 2 feature-length documentaries based on the Ultimate Matrix Collection. It goes over a number of philosophical concepts that inspired, & are presented in, the trilogy. They spend the first half on the original film, and the rest of the time then goes over parts 2 & 3, with a couple of thoughts on the Animatrix shorts. This consists of clips the movies and interviews. They do a good job of informing the audience about the various thoughts, although it would obviously take far longer to go over all the symbolism in them, and one can ask the very appropriate question if something anywhere near that definite and final is even desired, by viewers or the Wachowskis alike. That does mean that this is limited, but it is likely enough to enlighten and provide food for thought. In line with the series, this may provoke debate, rather than give answers set in stone. Whether one cares for this or not may depend on the extent of their knowledge on the subject, the old ideas, as well as how much they’ve thought about the presence of such in these three silver screen efforts. Obviously, it also makes a difference if one particularly wants to think about the meanings one could possibly take out of them.
