Keanu Reeves Articles and Interviews Archive

1999 – 2000

the matrix has you. the replacements. the gift. the watcher.

And then came 1999 with The Matrix: revolutionising cinematic history, bringing back the trenchcoat, and cementing Keanu's position in Hollywood's A List. His fanbase exploded. KeanuWeb – eventually to be the largest fansite until it closed its doors a decade later – was launched.

Keanu was re-typecast from slightly-dim surfer dude to nerdy computer hacker who saves the world, made gleefully ironic by how Keanu didn't even own a computer. (I guess he knows best. When the machines take over the world, he'd probably be one of the last ones standing after all the rest of us have been eaten by our laptops.)
