Mixed Matrix feelings
The Seattle P-I, in this morning's review of The Matrix, which I will see in Seattle on Friday, says the philosohy of the film (including an extended discussion of chaos theory and determinism, they say) was very complicated and over the head of the reviewer.
Which has me excited.
Time Magazine reports that The Matrix is informed by such diverse sources as Hesse, Homer, and Gnosticism and seems suprised that the director-brothers Wachowski have read such things and have such "erudition."
Which is depressing, I think.
