The film pays a huge homage to Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", although there are also references to Karl Marx, Franz Kafka, Zen, and Homer's Odyssey. One of the main featured works of literature is "Simulcra and Simulation" by the French philosopher Jean Baudrillaud... ...


Cypher: Yeah.

Trinity: Don't be ridiculous.
Cypher: We're gonna kill him. You understand that?

When Neo is fighting Morpheus for the first time (Kung Fu) there is a moment when Morpheus grabs Neo's kick and them flips/spins him to the ground.

Neo does a side kick in to the chest of Morpheus, who catches it, right hand on top, left hand underneath Neo's ankle.

The spin is correct and Morpheus's hands spin Neo and end up with his elbows crossed from the motion of twisting Neo's ankle.

However in the final cut of the scene, instead of having his elbows crossed then going to the finishing stance, Morpheus is already in the finishing stance and Laurence Fishburne has to correct the movement.

He then lowers his arms so his elbows are crossed, then repeats the finishing movement with his left hand above his head and the right hand down by his right hip.
