Welcome to a NEW kind of film-criticism series, built around the radical premise that just because "everyone knows" a movie is a classic doesn't mean it stops being worth a deeper look.
THE MATRIX broke though like few blockbusters ever had in 1999, heralding a whole new breed of action film and action filmmaker for the 21st Century. It spawned legions of imitators, inspired whole books of philosophical analysis and utterly redefined the look and feel of Western action filmmaking.
Now, almost 20 years later, the film's staggering impact is clear - but what about its actual quality? Does one of the most influential blockbusters in Hollywood history still stack up now that it's gone from looking like the future of the medium to a historical artifact in its own right? And what does it mean today, in the wake of two ultra-divisive sequels and the surprising post-film public lives of its visionary creators?
Is THE MATRIX... Really That Good?
