Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


"The Matrix" (1999) is movement, establishing the kinesics that characterise the trilogy generally and make their viewing a breathtaking experience. From the opening scenes of the first film to the final battle between Neo and Smith, and then Neo’s Superman flight over the Matrix simulation, the movement in the movie – of text and of people, creates the narrative that is the movie’s structuring device.
