I rewatched this series of movies for the first time since they were in the theatre. (I’d seen the first many times, but the last two each only once.)
It’s better than I remembered.
Filming multipart releases in one extended shoot has become more common post-Lord of the Rings. The Wachoskis were ahead of their time in this regard and many of the things that drove me batty the first time watching the series were, I now realize, missteps in handling the episodic realities of an ambitious three-part story.
