Keanu plays Marlon James in this 1990 film "I Love You to Death". Marlon is a deeply-stoned, would-be-killer that is profoundly absent minded.

The Matrix was released in 1998, The Matrix Reloaded in 2002 and The Matrix Revolutions in 2003. The art of make up and with the help of special effects, Neo appeared albino when rescued from the pod that kept him alive. Keanu's shaved head also added a "fictional time" effect to the "many years" spent on life support in a pod manufactured by machines. The Matrix is also recognized for popularizing the use of a visual effect known as "bullet time", which allows the viewer to explore a moment progressing in slow-motion as the camera appears to orbit around the scene at normal speed. Keanu trained hard and perfected his performance with the many martial art disciplines that the film required for their fight scenes.
