Shabaz and Sentient1 sent us THIS HUGE REPORT!
Larry Wachowski, with his brother Andy, wrote and directed the enormously successful Matrix film trilogy, which has now grossed close to 3 billion dollars. But Larry has consistently refused to comment on the meaning of the Matrix films, or even discuss them in public or with the media.
In the first of a series of conversations with his friend Ken Wilber, Larry has agreed to begin discussing some of the central issues of the movies, their creation, and their reception. These dialogues will be carried exclusively on Integral Naked and at Integral University.
The beginning of this discussion started when Larry asked Ken to do the Director’s Commentary on all three of the Matrix movies for the Matrix DVD box set that Warner Brothers is bringing out this September. Because Larry and Andy refused to comment on the films, they asked Ken and Cornel West to do so in their stead.
So last month, Ken and Cornel flew to Los Angeles, and while watching all 3 films, gave 16 hours of commentary. This was edited down to 6 hours to fit the 3 films, and this commentary will be part of the Matrix trilogy box set soon to be released.
The Integral Naked dialogue that will be aired here on July 19 is a conversation that Ken and Larry had right before Ken left for L.A. to do the commentary with Cornel. This is the first of an ongoing series of discussions that, at a future date, will deal with some of Larry’s own thoughts on the meaning of the Matrix and its reception.
Needless to say, we hope you will stay tuned for this stunning, absorbing story of the many meanings of the Matrix as that story unfolds on Integral Naked, conversations you will hear nowhere else….
So, the commentary tracks will be with Ken Wilber and Cornel West. The interviews will feature some thoughts of Larry Wachowski. Should be fantastic.
