Haunted Hollywood

Professor Hibbs comments on some of the issues raised by the faults of Matrix Revolutions. “Walker Percy was fond of describing the south as Christ forgetting and Christ haunted. The much-anticipated final entry in the Matrix trilogy, Matrix Revolutions, a disappointing film roundly and justifiably lambasted by critics, provides evidence that the story of Christ continues to haunt the most unlikely of communities—Hollywood.” And, “what is surprising about Revolutions is the clear ascendancy of Christian imagery: the suffering servant, the One who conquers evil by enduring it, light overcoming darkness, and especially the cross.” (Thomas Hibbs, National Review, November 10, 2003)
