New Film Theory Suggests Neo Isn't The One In The Matrix Trilogy

The latest video from the Youtube channel, The Film Theorists, presents a theory that Mr. Anderson is NOT the One in the Wachowskis' The Matrix trilogy.

In this 15-minute video they present some intriguing evidence to backup their off-center viewpoint. It ultimately hinges on how you interpret key dialogue from the Oracle, the Architect and Agent Smith.
