Desert IslandWhy I Saw It: A reviewer said it was the best science fiction film in years, it appeared to be to my taste, and Laurence Fishburne was in it.
What I Thought: Saw it eleven times in the theater, have lost count since.

The Matrix. Dir. Lilly Wachowski, Lana Wachowski (the Wachowskis). Perf. Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, Joe Pantoliano, Marcus Chong, Gloria Foster. Warner Bros., 1999.

A disillusioned computer hacker finds himself able to make contact with his elusive guru, who reveals to him a truth more far-reaching and disturbing than he could possibly have imagined.

For whatever reason you see it , you won’t be disappointed – plot, special effects, performances (Laurence Fishburne and Hugo Weaving are both 3Rollers). If you have any interest at all either in science fiction or the nature of human life on Earth, do not miss this one.
