Max Landis on

The Matrix

Released 1999
Distributor Warner Bros.

The Wachowski Sisters’ genre bending thriller plays more levels of 3-D chess than perhaps Spock himself could have handled. The directors tapped into some mind-meld with moviegoers as well; The Matrix was a smash hit making way for two sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. Stylistically innovative and much copied, the film starred Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss as the slow-motion somersaulters of the matrix.

About Max Landis

Max Landis is a screenwriter, and now a director and a producer too, which is neat. He wrote Chronicle and that was pretty cool, and it looks like other stuff he wrote will be movies also, which he describes as “exciting.” Max loves movies and comics and arbitrary weirdness that doesn’t namedrop itself or try too hard to be cool.
