When I was in my twenties, at my angriest and loneliest it was my firm belief that people, at their core, can never change.
I’m here to tell you, on the eve of my 40th year on this planet, that not only can people change, but that anyone who tells you otherwise is still angry and lonely… just waiting for someone to help them find their way.
What a lovely love letter to this notion, in the form of a post script to a story that helped me find my way in my late twenties.
The Matrix Resurrections is an incredible achievement: A perfect sequel to a widely misunderstood trilogy of films that, thankfully, never sells-out the narrative resolution of the previous chapters for the audience they lost in 2003. More unexpectedly it’s also a thematic sequel to Speed Racer, tackling Lana’s feelings on art vs commerce, and ownership in 2021. It expands the world of The Matrix into beautiful new directions that I hope get explored with more films, shows, games, what have you. I cannot wait to watch it again and again.
