Dr. West - the Matrix

While in Sydney for the movie shoot, Dr. West said he and the Wachowskis had bonded over ''wrestling with the meaning of life and the purpose of human existence.'' They share an affinity for plucking ideas from religion, philosophy, pop music, television and movies, and synthesizing them into a prophetic, liberating message. They want to make the world a more philosophical place. (The brothers even gave reading assignments to all of the principal actors in the movie.)
