Are we really living in a simulation? That’s the central question of A Glitch in the Matrix, a new documentary from Room 237 director Rodney Ascher. Since premiering at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival last weekend, Ascher’s A Glitch in the Matrix has caught the attention of existential junkies and sci-fi fans desperate for more information about simulation theory, or the belief that all reality is an artificial simulation created by a powerful computer.
As Decider’s Anna Menta wrote in her A Glitch in the Matrix review, the new documentary may not convince you that reality is entirely simulated, but it “will nonetheless send shivers down your spine.” If that’s what you’re after, you should make it a point to check out Rodney Ascher’s new film. Where can I watch A Glitch in the Matrix? Is A Glitch in the Matrix documentary streaming? Here’s everything you need to know — provided that this article actually exists, of course.
WHAT IS A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX DOCUMENTARY ABOUT?
Directed by expert theorizer Rodney Ascher, the mastermind behind The Shining-focused doc Room 237, A Glitch in the Matrix explores the idea that we’re all living in a simulated reality. The documentary features interviews with various believers, many of which are gamers, who provide “eye witness” accounts of how they know life is an artificial simulation. For many, the touchstone of the documentary will be an interview with Joshua Cooke, a teenager obsessed with The Matrix who became convinced he was living in a simulation and murdered his parents with a shotgun.
