The Animatrix: A Detective Story

Written By: Shinichiro Watanabe
Directed By: Shinichiro Watanabe

A spare film noir-style detective story about a down-on-his-luck detective hired to find Trinity the hacker, early in her career with Morpheus. In black and white the filmmakers capture amazing 40s-style New York scenes especially impressive in the latter half depicting a snowfall. Using an array of old and new technology the detective tracks her down by hanging out on hacker sites tracking down Alice in Wonderland references. He has been hired by the Agents of course to help lead them to Trinity. The story ends appropriately with a gunfight on a train. Carrie-Anne Moss provides the voice for Trinity in this film.

Did You Know?

'The Surrender of Breda', a famous classical painting by Spanish painter, Diego Velázquez, appears at a critical juncture of 'Reloaded'. The painting shows the general of the surrendering city giving the keys to the city to the conquering Spanish general during the Spanish-Dutch war in the 17th century. And when does it appear? The painting appears only briefly while the Keymaker is running away from the Twins along a very long corridor with doors, followed by Morpheus and Trinity...in the building where the keymaker is kept and before he gives his own key to Neo to enter the Source, of course.
