    Parallel Universes

    The Matrix has very many parallels to our world. I certainly believe that most of us exist under an unseen control, in fact we have bought in so much that we assist in our own oppression.  I've really become interested in the Jean Baudrillard concept of the desert of the real...

    More Important Than What, Is When..

    The Matrix Is a Metaphor For Life

    The philosophical tone conveyed by The Matrix was the main reason I watched it over and over again. I was just fascinated by the movie and it remains to be the best movie in my list.
