A fantastic movie with so much depth you need a philosophy major in order to understand all the nuances of this amazing trilogy. Neo (Reeves) is searching for something that he can’t quite put his finger on. He is contacted online and is told to “follow the white rabbit”. Neo is then thrust into a world that makes him question his very existence. He must confront self doubt and eventually prepare for his destiny which could mean that Neo is the fulfillment of a prophesy who will save mankind.
