Deep thoughts on Surfer Dude

I said the following in an IM session to my brother Sean an hour or so ago, and he thought it was pretty insightful, so I'll post it here. It's about the Matrix movies, in case that's not blatantly obvious.

"People grumble about Keanu, but show me one other actor who can simultaneously play a kung-fu action hero, Christ, Buddha, and a complete fucking idiot, all at the same time."

I know that, with "simultaneously", and "at the same time", I'm being somewhat redundant. Besides that, I'm saying the same thing twice. But that was the quote as told to my bruddah, and to say otherwise would be to tell a lie.
