THE MATRIX
1999, Warner Bros., 136 min, USA, Australia, Dir: Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski

Directors Andy and Lana Wachowski create a liquid, dreamlike techno-future in which embattled humans fight for their minds and souls against computer-generated enforcers. Keanu Reeves stars as Neo, sole hope for the future of mankind, with help from leather-clad teammate Carrie-Anne Moss and enigmatic guru Laurence Fishburne. Arguably the most influential mainstream sci-fi film since BLADE RUNNER.


FRANKENSTEIN (2015)
2015, Alchemy, 90 min, USA/Germany, Dir: Bernard Rose

This arresting contemporary take on Mary Shelley’s horror classic is set in Los Angeles, where husband-and-wife scientists Victor and Elizabeth Frankenstein (Danny Huston and Carrie-Anne Moss) give life to an imperfect being (Xavier Samuel) who must fend for himself when cast off by his creators. As told from the monster’s point of view, human cruelty becomes as terrifying as the violence he cannot escape. Grand prize winner at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.


MEMENTO
2001, Park Circus, 113 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Nolan

Guy Pearce is Leonard Shelby, a man with no short-term memory and in search of his wife’s killer. He uses Polaroids, tattoos - even hand-scrawled notes - to remember not only clues about the murder but also aspects of his identity. Unfolding in mind-boggling fragmentary fashion, this tense noir has a sting in its scorpion tail. With Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano.
