All we know such film as “The matrix” which was so famous some years ago, and it is still one of the most legendary and fantastic movies which people have ever made and seen. But it is believed that this film has never been created easily. While making the analyses of this film, it may be noticed that there are lots of Gnostic and Christian elements. And, of course, it is so necessary to discuss all of them to understand the intentions better.
Let’s consider the Gnostic elements firstly. So when we start to think about this kind of philosophy, we might see the existence of its structures and the principles in The Matrix. Taking into account the Gnostic philosophy, there are always the struggle and war between two opposing worlds. They are The World of Badness and The World of Goodness. And this movie indicates us and shows us this fact.
It is also a well-known fact that there are components of the human. It is said about body, soul and essence. According to the movie “The Matrix”, the essence and body belong to the opposing world, and the soul belongs to the World of Goodness. In this film it is Zion. Probably he has chosen the blue pill in order not to struggle the difficulties which he might face with. Neo makes the choice and takes the red one, rejects the happiness of ignorance and starts to struggle with the machines. These episodes demonstrate that he rejects the needs of his own essence and body. Most of us may remember “The Woman in Red” when the software was created by Mouse as the way for the testing essence of Neo. This character looks that the woman is so sexy and desirable and fails his test. It is explained that his essence dominates above his souls, and in result, the essence is the winner, which is on the first place. But on the other hand, taking into account the information of Morpheus, not rescued souls are the pieces of the opposing word, which is called machine one. This is controlled by the machines, and that is the reason of his failing the test.
Moreover, the so-called dualism in Gnosticism can be also noticed by the audience, which looks this movie. The characters are fighting with the machines, but they also need them in order to have more fresh air, energy and clean water. As we can understand and make the conclusion, there are lots of Gnostic elements in the movie The Matrix.
But Christian elements also take place in the plot of this movie. And it is said that The Matrix looks like the interesting interpretation of the story which is connected with Jesus.
