I watched it on release back in the day and fell in love with it.
I also experience some paranoid delusions of virtual reality which were very scary.
It's one of my favourite movie trilogies.. There are so many different layers to it..
Every time I watch it I learn something new..
My first thoughts are that the 'matrix' is similar to our physical world. We may have glimpses of being beyond the matrix. Through intense and rigorous spiritual practice one can transcend this world. The matrix itself is predictable and its master doesn't understand 'choice', which makes it reminiscent of a materialist-deterministic worldview of our universe..
What would Smith be..?
