The Matrix, the Nineties and searching for The One

Whoah. The Bigger Picture logs on for series 3. This episode we're plugging into The Matrix, the Wachowskis' cyber-hacking kung-fu smacking techno western. Anna, Hen and Pete see through the 1s and 0s to discover how the film - 20 years old this year - has aged, work out what it got right about the internet and argue about whether it's a really a love story between Morpheus, Neo and their online dating profiles. There may be a spoon.


The Matrix is screening at the BFI Southbank as part of the BFI's Nineties season. More information here:
