Matrix Reloaded

• Two of the most highly-anticipated films of the year are the Matrix sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. We swallowed the red pill and caught up with the cast and crew, including Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who gave us a ‘taster’ of what we can expect!

Full Frontal
• Shot entirely on digital video in just 18 days, director Steven Soderbergh explains why this unofficial follow-up to sex, lies and videotape was such an interesting venture for him.
