I'll Take the Red Pill, Please

In the movie, when Morpheus is about to offer Neo the choice between either the red pill or the blue pill, he explains:

“You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain -- but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life; that there's something wrong with the world; you don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?”

“The Matrix?” Neo asks.

“Do you want to know what it is? The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us. Even in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes; it is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”

And Neo asks, “What truth?”

“That you are a slave Neo, like everyone else, you were born into bondage; born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch; a prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to experience it for yourself.”

I love that movie... yo hubiera e scogido saber.

una pelicula en esa onda mas o menos.. bien buena es equilibrium.

= krlz = said...

equilibrium me pareció una copia chueca de matrix, o sea, por la trama en sí y el aspecto social que se toca en la movie, pero se pasa...
por otro lado, aqui tengo el soundtrack de anymatrix, hay una canción que tiene ese dialogo (con todo y musica} antes de empezar la cancion propiamente dicha, y después se queda en una dique: "take the blue pill, take the red pill..." (X 8)
que caliente baja
