1999. USA. Written and directed by Andy Wachowski, Lana (Larry) Wachowski. With Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss. Thomas Anderson leads a double life as a computer programmer by day and a computer hacker named Neo by night. With the help of Morpheus and Trinity, Neo discovers that the "here and now" is an illusion maintained by malevolent machines. Suddenly capable of the gravity-defying martial arts usually seen in Hong Kong action films, Neo bounds across the screen in "bullet time" thanks to the film's truly innovative CGI effects. Winner of four Academy Awards in 2000. 136 min.
