Baudrillard and The Matrix

A French Philosopher Talks Back to Hollywood and ‘The Matrix’. The New York Times, May 2002. Baudrillard “noted that the film’s ‘borrowings’ from his work ‘stemmed mostly from misunderstandings’ and suggested that no movie could ever do justice to the themes of this book. This sounds like a parody of a French intellectual, but it also happens to be true.”

Was it really worth posting a link to a site that makes one sign up just to read a badly written piece by an author who appears to have little understanding of ‘The Matrix’, let alone Baudrillard?
