Animatrix: Beyond

Saturday 14 June 2003

The Animatrix is a collection of animated short stories in the world of The Matrix. Most of them I didn’t care for (lots of violence), but I really liked the episode called “Beyond”. It’s quiet and beautiful. A woman follows some children to a “haunted house” which is really a bug in the matrix. They find beauty and joy in the bugs there. To me, it was about serendipity and the unexpected. As a coder, it also was a cool visual metaphor for unreachable code paths and unintended side-effects!


I just saw "Spirited Away" last night. You want to talk about powerful imagery? *shudder*. On a side note, it was wonderful.
