The Matrix (1999) / The Matrix Resurrections (2021) & Ryan Skonnord
For Ryan’s dual pick, the ongoing story of Neo and Trinity in the most recent movie cast a more interesting light on their relationship from the original. Diana has a conundrum with the podcast “what happens next” rules since only Lana Wachowski came back to write and direct Resurrections. Here is the Twin Peaks You Tube video Ryan mentions. The Matrix – When a beautiful stranger leads computer hacker Neo to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth — the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence. Stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne, Hugo Weaving, Gloria Foster, Joe Pantoliano, Marcus Chong, Julian Arahanga, Matt Doran, Belinda McClory, Anthony Ray Parker, written and directed by Lilly Wachowski and Lana Wachowski. (from IMDb.com) The Matrix Resurrections – Return to a world of two realities: one, everyday life; the other, what lies behind it. To find out if his reality is a construct, to truly know himself, Mr. Anderson will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more. Stars Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jonathan Groff, Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris, Jada Pinkett Smith, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Christina Ricci, written and directed by Lana Wachowski.
