There Is No Spoon

The Matrix
Warner Bros Pictures (1999)
Regal Cinema had a 25th anniversary screening of The Matrix last night, and seeing it again on the big screen reminded me of just how great the original really is.  This is a sci-fi masterpiece.

A good movie makes you forget that the outside world exists while you're watching it.   A great movie bleeds into the outside world after the credits have rolled.  When I walked out of the theater to my car, I had an eerie feeling that reminded me of what it feels like for the first few minutes after waking up from an especially vivid dream.  It's the same feeling I had after watching it for the first time twenty five years ago.
