lol. You wonder how the Matrix trilogy might have panned out with a better actor in the lead... He didn't ruin the first film, he was just merely adequate
I am trying to think of a single good Reeves performance.. if anybody gets one don't keep it to yourself!

I imagine his earlier acting would be better... or worse, I dunno. The earliest movie I've seen him in is Bill & Ted.

And Parenthood. He's good when he's playing an idiot. Also I thought he was surprisingly good in A Scanner Darkly.

He was also funny as a stoner in I Love You to Death.

yeaah forgot about the idiotic surfer-dude persona, guess that's how he made his name! A Scanner Darkly I loved initially but it leaves me flat now, mainly down to Reeves n Ryder. It's just better as a read. And some of the monologues in that film... it's dangerously close to the pretense-fest (?) that was 'Waking Life' (had some interesting points to make but went about it entirely the wrong way IMO). Anyway I'll shut up cause we had a Linklater debate only a few pages back

So much Waking Life hate, it's pretentious up the ass, yes. But also a very refreshing, imaginative and thought provoking film I thought.

I loved the animation too, the variety of visual styles used. It reminds me of Ralph Bakshi's use of rotoscoping for American Pop.

No movie can come as close as this one does to perfection.
