So I know I've expressed my admiration of the Wachowski siblings before. Their work on the Matrix Trilogy blew me away. So, too, did their take on V for Vendetta. Last fall they came out with another film. Though it was pretty much snubbed by most, a few critics pointed out that the format of the story alone made it difficult for most to grasp the true meaning behind it. It also didn't help that the majority of the world is either Christian, Jewish, or Muslim and therefore the concept of reincarnation can be viewed as irrational or even stupid. Also, the US tends to pride itself on focusing on the individual and not on humanity as a whole.

I thought the movie (based off of the novel by the same name) was brilliant. Similar to the Matrix Trilogy and V for Vendetta, they take existence as it is now and give it a "what if" scenario. I'm not going to spoil much of it for you. So watch it yourself if you have time (3 to 3 1/2 hours long). Let me know what you think.
