I love Agent Smith. It's funny, because I was all about Neo until this scene, which reminded me of.. Didion. We tell ourselves stories in order to live.
(Plus no matter how violent Smith is, I keep thinking, That's Hugo Weaving and he's in Sydney right now!)
'Can you tell me what it is?'
'Why, Mr Anderson, why? Why? Why do you persist?' (And no, I don't particularly love these 2 lines, I'm just typing whatever.)
Big hearts fluttering all around me.
Smith would hate it.
Anyway I felt a surge of affection for Sydney because most of The Matrix trilogy was filmed here!
It's kinda amazing watching train stations I actually use onscreen! In such awesome scenes!
I still can't tell whether this is St James or Museum, but I personally find that both stations give off similar haunted vibes. They are both this dingy IRL.
(Note: Wikipedia says it's St James.)
But of course now I can't look at the stations the same way again.
Next time I see them, in my eyes they're gonna be sparkling with star power!
Beh tahan myself.
