Reeves dissects the gains and losses of technological advances and industry shifts in filmmaking, which he details in the documentary, Side by Side.

Keanu Reeves has maintained a steady film career with diverse credits that include a mix of big-budget features, like the blockbuster Speed—which made him an instant A-lister—and The Matrix trilogy, as well as low-budget indies and roles on the stage. Born in Beirut, Lebanon, Reeves grew up primarily in Toronto, Canada and, at age 15, opted to pursue acting over his interest in playing professional hockey. While he carefully chooses his acting roles, he’s also transitioned to working behind the camera, producing and narrating the documentary, Side By Side, and making his directorial debut with Man of Tai Chi.

Look at Keanu… trying to rebrand himself as a series filmmaker!

You know what? I wish him well… always thought he took much more of a beating then he deserved.

ya know, i appreciate this film he’s making. i think its a great idea. if i had the budget i’d make something like that myself, and i don’t doubt its gonna be great. please keanu (if you ever in the wide world of sports read this) don’t take this as a diss on your otherwise sounds like awesome documentary. but if you wanted to explain this debate to grandma’s at the beginning, i think that was a bit complex. lol
