    Oh, hey, a mature matrix movie made by a mature adult for mature adult audiences! Age, experience, and wisdom over beauty. 

    Smart, meta, wise, free of poseur philosophical pretense, this film straight up mocks the shallow philosophies of the young, goth/industrial cyberpunk LARPers of 20 years ago, in favor of deeply textured and wiser middle aged characters. 

    Lana Wachowski has a couple extra decades of life away from being an edgy Chicago club kid from the 90s playing at being…
