Ryan posts his own Matrix review. He's a Buddhologist (much further along the path than I am, at the tender age of, what, 23 or 24), and his appreciation of the film seems rooted in much the same sensibilities I have. Alert to Buddhist (and other religious) tropes and their potential, Ryan immediately picked up on what was missing from this final installment. I hope to see it sometime very soon (perhaps even this weekend, esp. if the Maximum Leader is able to pry himself away from the dwarf-beating sessions-- however crucial they may be to the smooth functioning of the exalted realm-- for a few hours). Of course I'll be writing my own review after the movie.
