The Matrix is an example of the cyberpunk subgenre of science fiction. The film popularized a visual effect known as "bullet time", in which the heightened perception of characters is represented by allowing the action within a shot to progress in slow-motion while the camera appears to move through the scene at normal speed, allowing the sped-up movements of the characters to be perceived normally.

#9. Life Of Pi
