A Supercut Of Close-Up Shots From The Matrix

What if everything you were ever taught about cinema was a lie? What if The Matrix was fictional? What if those shades-wearing heroes of the trilogy were actually actors?

OK, so you knew this already - we'll be taking those red and blue pills back, thank you very much, and instead leaving this video to give you a new perspective on the 1999 sci-fi classic. Visually dissecting all the major close-ups, it's going to make you far less concerned with Neo and Trinity’s efforts to save mankind and more intrigued by how the film was crafted.

Scored to the industrial orchestral sound of Don Davis’s powerhouse soundtrack, we see every major visual zoom shot employed by The Wachowskis: pills are handled, buttons are pressed, boots are worn, folders are closed – just much more excitingly than we’re making it all sound. Brilliant.

And if you’re seeing streams of green and code as you watch it, you're looking too closely.
