The Films That Inspired The Matrix

One thing unites the most popular story tellers in history: Plagiarism.

Shakespeare. Dickens. Rowling. The Wachowskis. All of them gifted at spinning a yarn, albeit a yarn that borrows threads from many, many other sources. And we're not about to criticise them - popular culture will always play upon familiar ideas and cues from other works. Today's B Movies will inspire the blockbuster directors of the next generation.

Culturegraphy is a group dedicated to highlighting this exchange of memes in the world of cinema. The following video shows their exploration of The Wachowskis' The Matrix, exploring each of the films that helped inspire the visuals, choreography and set pieces of their 1999 classic.

Think of it this way - if you liked The Matrix, you've now got a whole bunch of films you'll probably enjoy watching just as much.
