So, if you ask any two fans about the “Matrix” movies, they will have some pet ideology which they believe the movies embody. And these are deeply allegorical movies, so I’m sure you can find influence or parallel to any number of schools of thought.
I have seen some interpretations which claim that the entire series is an allegory for Christian mythology, and some which claim that they are explicitly anti-Christian. Neither of those is correct, although the former is closer.
The first movie is actually an allegorical representation of Gnosticism. The second movie incorporates the Jewish Q’bala, and third is a representation of Christianity. Yes, I can explain all this, but I don’t feel like writing another paper between papers. 🙂
If the pattern holds, I predict that the new Matrix movie will centralize on some sort of Nietzschiean “God is dead” nonsense.
