Most Bizarre Hollywood Dystopias
The Matrix 1999
In a world ruled by machines, peoples minds are trapped inside a virtual reality and their bodies are used as batteries by the robots. A group of humans has managed to escape, and they turn their efforts to defeating the robots both in and out of The Matrix.The most interesting element of this film is in the dynamic of the Matrix itself. Many of the captive people on the inside live normal lives, with the comforts and troubles of the average person in 1999. The free people of the world, meanwhile, struggle to survive on the outside, and have few comforts, if any. Is it a convincing case for ignorance as bliss?
