You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

Keanu Reeves’ cubicle drone/hacker “Neo” gets a rude awakening, discovering that the real world he knows is a shared hallucination and that humankind are being harvested for bioelectricity by their machine overlords. A watershed movie, not only for the popularization of Hong Kong “wire fu” fighting techniques imported by choreographer Yuen Woo-ping, but for the flexible red pill/blue pill metaphor it introduced, adopted by paranoiacs of all political affiliations. (USA, 1999, 136 Mins. R, english | Dir. Lana & Lili Wachowski)
