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 Architect's wall of video monitors in 'Reloaded' appears briefly in 'The Matrix': Immediately after Neo is apprehended at MetaCorTechs, and before he is interrogated by Agent Smith, the camera slowly zooms in on several video monitors showing Neo sitting in the interrogation room. Many people assumed the monitors were connected to interrogation room cameras in the police station, but curiously, they all showed the same image of Neo in his room. The Architect was watching Neo even before he was awakened by Morpheus and his crew.
