Remember how “The Matrix” argued we are all living in a simulation that makes us think we are in the real world?
The documentary “A Glitch in the Matrix” focuses on people who actually believe our reality is but a construct, a computer simulation controlled and designed by an ancient civilization — one that is possibly not from Earth.
Join director Rodney Ascher, who specializes in documentaries about people who question our everyday existence (“Room 237,” “The Nightmare”) as he presents his latest film and participates in a Q&A with the audience.
Admission is free but registration is required at link above.
"The movie takes the pulse of how science fiction has merged with our imaginations. It’s got animated sequences that are like puckishly staged video games, and it features an ironic cast of giddy talking-head incels — a total arrested boys’ club, alternately fascinating and annoying. Elon Musk is their tycoon celebrity hero.
"We see clips of Musk on a talk show saying, “The odds that we’re in base reality is one in billions.” What his minions don’t understand is that he’s selling himself as an out-of-the-box mod futurist. Elon Musk says reality isn’t real! Whoa! Where can I sign up!? It’s hardly incidental that “The Matrix” starred Keanu Reeves. If “A Glitch in the Matrix” is evidence, simulation theory is now threatening to turn a whole lot of us into Bill and Ted." -- Owen Gleiberman, Variety
