This is pretty amazing -- I'm glad that SOMEONE is going to do the commentary. Ken Wilbur and Cornel West are not simply Larry's friends -- Ken Wilbur is a philosopher who has written a number of books on philosophical ideas that underlie The Matrix (perhaps he was a major influence on the movies -- I don' t know when Larry got to know him and his work), and Cornel West is one of the most prominent intellectual forces in the African American community (he is a chaired professor of African American Studies at Princeton). Given that philosophy, battles against oppression, prejudice, and "learning to live together" are all key themes in the trilogy and the Animatrix, I expect that they will have plenty interesting to say. stick out tongue

Real
ok, but still...they still dont have the vision that the w bros had when they made the movies...i dont think it will be a comentary so much as an interpretation of it...but when that heppens, people are gonna take their word for fact n we still wont have any clue as to what the bros were necesarily thinking during the creation of the movies...im sure it will give insight into what they were...but only the bros themselves can say what they were thinking...

Real: You point out that having this commentary won't end the arguments because we still won't know what The Bros were thinking.

This is true, and it is my guess that this is exactly why they won't give the commentary themselves. They don't want the arguments to end.

Before you get annoyed with them, ask yourself this: Did DaVinci explain why the Mona Lisa smiles??? NO!! Part of the reason that this or any other art is great is that every person reads their own interpretation into it. Some interpretations are better than others, but none is "right". As long as the art (be it a painting or a book or a movie) is open to interpretation, it is alive, and it grows with each new set of people that experience it. If the Bros told us exactly what to think, this process would die.

Although I would LOVE to hear The Bros commenting on the trilogy, they are carrying on in the tradition of many great creators who refuse to comment in detail on their work so that people have the freedom to decide what the work means for themselves.
cool

Real
