EP. 302.1 — The Matrix
Amy & Paul stop time for 1999’s reality-bending blockbuster The Matrix! They marvel at the preternatural shared mind of directors Lana and Lilly Wachowski, explore the political and social after-effects of the ‘Matrix’ concept, and ask each other whether they would take the red pill or the blue pill. Plus: What if this movie had starred Janet Jackson and Will Smith?
Next week Unspooled wraps up the year with A Christmas Story!
