Alamo Drafthouse Houston says
Tantalizingly teased with a promotional campaign asking the enigmatic question "What is the Matrix?", this movie hit screens in 1999 like a complete system reset for all of sci-fi and action cinema. Reality was never the same again.

Thomas A. Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a malevolent hacker known as Neo, who finds himself targeted by the police when he is contacted by Morpheus, a legendary computer hacker, who reveals the shocking truth about our reality.

With THE MATRIX, the Wachowskis were asking dense and probing philosophical questions about the nature of existence, thought and free will and using a lifetime's worth of accumulated mythology, science-fiction, Hong Kong action cinema, comic books, and anime inspirations to bring their ideas to life. In the nearly 20 years since our minds were first freed from machine control, no other movie has reached THE MATRIX's level of deep thought, joyful invention, radical status-quo disruption or on-screen amount of patent leather fetishware.
