A video compilation of every single creative influence "borrowed" for The Matrix

Don't forget: you know who did the fight choreography for The Matrix? Yuen Woo-ping. Who did the fight choreography for *all* those linked movies? With probably one or two exceptions: Yuen Woo-ping.

The thing that cements The Matrix's place as one of the best movies of 1999, for me, is this: it brought all these *very* cult artifacts (Kung Fu movies, The Invisibles, Dickian paranoia, etc.) into a movie that made lots of money and never talked down to its audience. Totally derivative, sure.
