    This is one of the two feature-length documentaries on #8(The Roots of The Matrix) of the 10-Disc Ultimate Set. It goes over many philosophical concepts that inspired, and are presented in, the trilogy. They spend the first half(!) on the original film, and the rest of the time then goes over parts 2 and 3, with a couple of things on the Animatrix shorts. This consists of clips of aforementioned releases and interviews. This does a good job of informing the audience about the various thoughts, although it would obviously take far longer to go over all the symbolism in them, and one can ask the very appropriate question if something anywhere near that definite and final is even desired, by viewers or the Wachowskis alike. That does mean that this is limited, but it is likely enough to enlighten and provide food for thought. In line with the series, this may provoke debate, rather than give answers set in stone. Whether one cares for this or not may depend on the extent of their knowledge on the subject, the old ideas, as well as how much they've thought about the presence of such in these three silver screen efforts. Obviously, it also makes a difference if one particularly wants to think about the meanings one could possibly take out of them. This is well-edited and has an appropriate pace. It doesn't overstay its welcome or repeat itself. The tenth and last DVD of the set, Zion Archives, holds tons of artwork, as well as the media of the movies, meaning, trailers, TV spots and music videos. I recommend this to anyone who wishes descriptions of the stuff that we've seen interpreted, visualized and/or updated in the franchise.
