It's a question that has been around since the dawn of philosophy. What if our world and everything in it isn't real? The digital age has seen the idea of simulation theory enter the mainstream, not least on the back of The Wachowskis' seminal blockbuster The Matrix.

Now a mind-blowing brand-new film A Glitch In The Matrix from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Rodney Ascher has turned his attention from film obsessives (Kubrick and The Shining doc Room 237) and spooky sleep paralysis stories (The Nightmare, described as the scariest film of the decade) to simulation theory in another ground-breaking documentary.

Ascher and producer Ross Dinerstein ponder the questions it throws up - what does it mean if our whole existence is on the whim of some strange creature or gamer somewhere? We meet a fascinating line-up of people including those who believe we are living in some kind of game simulation, as well as scientists, experts and amateur sleuths who have been looking at this remarkable theory.

Beginning with Plato and using sci-fi master Philip K Dick as a major starting point, the film blends digital tech and animation to create a vibrant viewing experience. Bright, exciting talking avatars are used to represent true believers who believe in Simulation Theory rather than talking heads. And 3D animation is used to add more visual style to the film, which also bristles with scores of film clips, not least of The Matrix itself. The shadow of the 1999 film looms large over A Glitch In The Matrix, including interviews with a Neo obsessive whose lawyers advised using The Matrix Defence in court after being accused of brutal crimes.

Is it science fiction or science fact? Is it a cop out to avoid the complexities and madness of the modern world? Will you take the red pill? Or the blue pill? Released on DVD and Blu-ray 10th May 2021 from Dogwoof, watch A Glitch In The Matrix and decide.
