Dominatrix Reloaded

From the “watch what they do” files: Matrix co-creator Larry Wachowski is allegedly heading toward a gender-change, and his companion to the premiere of Reloaded is a well-known dominatrix whose husband has been making uncomfortable allegations to gossip columns worldwide. D. K. Holm explains the implications for interpreting the trilogy most pithily: “We thought that Freres Wachowski were making the liveliest, most advanced science fiction films of their times when in fact they thought they were making the Rocky Horror Picture Show Reloaded.” That certainly explains all the shiny leather. Another quote: “Wachowski’s presumed desire to switch sexes provides an insight into the fluctuating identities of the Matrix world. The morphing and shape shifting that lies at the heart of MatrixWorld now appears born of an agonized discomfort with one’s own identity, a turmoil that finds solace in a fantasy world of easy transmutation.” (Cinemonkey, May 29, 2003).
