A revolutionary reimagination of cinematic visualization that paved the way for three sequels, a spin-off anime, video games, and endless parodies and think pieces, The Matrix isn’t just one of the most influential movies of all time—it changed how the mainstream responded to reality itself. Keanu Reeves stars as the computer programmer drawn into the “real world” of freedom fighters (including Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss), who are up against a computer-driven digital matrix feeding on humans, and necktie-clad agents of a simulation (led by Hugo Weaving) tasked with keeping the system in place. From its popularization of wire fu and groundbreaking bullet-time effects demonstrating the concept of “faster than a speeding bullet,” to its remarkably lucid distillations of Baudrillard and Lacan and head-to-toe leather aesthetic, the Wachowskis’ magnum opus might be written all over pop culture today, but it rarely screens on 35mm.

Unsurprisingly, rewatching this in a theater inspired us to start writing Everything Everywhere. Take the red pill! [also f*ck the alt-right (and long live the Wachowski Queens!)]”Daniels
