With the 20th anniversary of The Matrix this month, we decided it about time we tackled the One. This week we're joined by special guest Carolyn, from So Here's What Happened. As a freelance journalist, film critic, and lover of martial arts we tackle why this 1999 film bent all the metaphorical pop culture spoons. We talk about Keanu Reeves, the productions of the film, the franchise, and of course, how The Matrix introduced a new standard of action sequences and fight choreography to American cinema. Do you remember all the trenchcoats and backbends in the early 2000s thanks to this franchise? Well, we'll tell you they mattered.
