The Matrix. May Tricks. We’re releasing this in May.

Its been a ten long years since The Matrix trilogy (and that Animatrix film, which was kind of part of it, but not really, otherwise it wouldn’t be referred to as a trilogy) and to celebrate we’re taking part in the All of Whine & Space project The Matrix Re-evaluated.

In this first episode we take a surprisingly intellectual look at a film that consists mostly of guns, leather and no emotions. This surprising intellectualism trots from how it reads as an Atheist text, and Simulation and Simulacra, to individual character accomplishment leading to ensemble problems and self-eating/repeating cultural patterns.

Don’t worry though, we also make poor taste jokes about young boys and androgynous girls.

So without further ado; The Matrix Re-evaluated part 1: The Matrix.

BONUS!: Audible traffic interference from Gorgie Road!
