If you’ve watched The Matrix lately, you might have noticed that it just seems to move better than most scifi action movies, or movies in any genre, really. There are a host of reasons for this, but a new video essay from Patrick (H) Willems focuses on one specific component of the movie’s mastery. It’s called The Matrix: A Lesson in Effective Scene Transitions.
The Matrix: A Lesson in Effective Scene Transitions illustrates how magnificently structured the film is, and how it engages viewers with clever and subtle transitions between scenes. If it’s Friday afternoon and you’re not feeling too intellectual, it’s also an excuse to watch some cool clips from The Matrix, always a worthwhile activity.
