The Matrix is episode 54 focusing on the movie of the same name, as part of the The Podchowski Casters miniseries covering the filmography of the Wachowskis. Recorded on 4/20 (nice). Posted 25 Apr 2016.

In Avatarland/The Second Blank Check Mailbag, David lists this episode as his favorite that they'd done so far.

Summary

The movie that gave the Wachowskis a blank check that they just kept using.

Griffin and David and Ben and many of us have seen this movie so many times that it was difficult to look at it with fresh eyes. So they came at it from as many oblique angles as they could.

How many different actors were offered the lead roles in The Matrix - all of them?) How did the Wachowskis go about hiring their fight/stunts coordinator? Does Mouse sell any death sticks to Neo? Why in heaven's name was Director of Photography Bill Pope not even nominated for a Best Cinematography Oscar?
