    So,


    I forgot the name of the film that came out... the one like the Matrix...

    Reality as virtual... or some such pseudo-pop-philosophy.

    Does anyone know?


    Ta!

    I don't think that's it.

    The one I mean came out in the cinema a few months ago (at least, it came out in Australia then).

    Ah, yes! Thank you. That's it.



    @Wabsta

    Great link. Thanks for that! Damn my lazy ass for not having googled it in the first place.

    first off, inception does not share a whole lot with the matrix... the 13th floor is what i would have said.

    Reality as virtual / the virtual as reality.

    I haven't actually seen it... but when it comes down to manipulating consciousness or some such, I'd call that a similar subject matter.

    Not that I've seen it, but I got that impression from the ad.

    Inception is not so close with The Matrix. But I watched Inception so it's a goody-good movie!

    I was thinking What The Bleep Do We Know.

    Didn't like that much.
