Keanu Reeves Articles and Interviews Archive

1996 – 1998

chain reaction. feeling minnesota. the devil's advocate. the last time i committed suicide.

Here was another lull in Keanu's career, soon to be ended by that little science-fiction film he started mentioning in interviews (and which a journalist summarised as being about a virtual world created by "the nasty computer, Matrix". I would totally watch that movie). Keanu received good critical acclaim for The Devil's Advocate, less so for Chain Reaction and Feeling Minnesota. He spent a good amount of the intervening time making music with Dogstar and just hanging around.
