I’m sure you’re all just dying to know, so in the interests of a good night’s sleep for all it’s The Matrix. I know, it’s not something worthy like The Killing Fields, arty like Lost In Translation, or even traditionally great like Citizen Kane. Good films all, but when I’m sat at home and have an unquantifiable need for something to watch, Keanu wins the day.
I was reminded of this today (yes I’m watching it now to cheer myself up after endless build problems) when I realized I hadn’t listened to the commentary track. I started it off, but switched it off after barely a minute – I’m sure it’s very good, but I was missing the film.
Oh, and for me it has one of the greatest lines certainly in an action film, on the roof of the office block where Morpheus is held prisoner: “Dodge this”. Man, I can already feel the testosterone flowing, and not just because of the vinyl jumpsuit.
