About this movie

A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237, THE NIGHTMARE), is a multimedia documentary that dives into the great existential question: Are we in fact living in a simulation? Using a seminal 1977 speech from Philip K. Dick as a jumping-off point, Ascher presents compelling scientific evidence and philosophical musings through interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars, as well as samples from cultural texts like Minecraft and The Matrix, to support the idea that the universe is a highly advanced computer simulation. Part sci-fi mind-scrambler, part true-crime horror story, A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX is an eye-popping, open-minded, and highly entertaining journey to the limits of radical doubt that leaves no stone unturned.

I expected this to be a serious, scientific examination, based on interviews with recognized academics and researchers. Instead it’s a bunch of skype interviews with “some guys”. There are some interesting, small parts with Philip K. Dick but you could just search for him on youtube and find material that’s just as good. This was mostly a disappointing waste of time.

As a believer myself of the possibility of simulation. I had a hard time agreeing with most of what was said. They did a really bad job at explaining how the simulation could be real and if anyone was on the fence, after watching this movie they'll probably never think seriously about simulation theory again
