From Neo’s Awakening to Agent Smith’s Omniscience: How Well Do You Know The Matrix? | The matrix


Ta Matrix is ​​more than a blockbuster movie franchise, more than a cultural touchstone, more than an epic reel for philosophical speeches from a dude in a trench coat with nose-clip sunglasses. With the first installment arriving in 1999, positioned on the edge of the good old 90s and the impending end of the 21st century, The Matrix became a believable (ish) way to explain the universe (anticipating simulation theory, which came soon after) and even spawned its own quasi-religion, “Matrixism”.

Written and directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski, much of the original trilogy was filmed in a computer simulation known as Australia: Not the most advanced program in the world, but it got the job done. With the trailer for the late fourth installment, The Matrix Resurrections, arriving last week ahead of the film’s release in Australian theaters on January 1, the world is poised to see through the veneer of existence again and to accept that our lives are just pieces of code designed by aliens.
