Tuesday, August 15: "The Matrix" Re-visit the original (and best) "Matrix," the groundbreaking movie from 1999. "The Matrix" fused an impressive array of underground cultural streams into one cinematic masterpiece–cyberpunk science fiction, Hong Kong martial arts & gunplay films, techno-metal mashup music, simulation theory ("the world is all a manufactured illusion"), even Buddhist philosophy….with a strong dose of mirrorshades-and-black-leather-trenchcoat fashion. Prior to the movie, Tim Kennelly will discuss some influences & inventions, including the unique "bullet-time" cinematography, that helped his film school colleague John C. Gaeta win that year's Oscar for best Visual FX.
