The Matrix Office: Similarities in Genres

I recently revisited Office Space and was shocked to see a scene much like The Matrix:

The Bad Guys Approach

Even though one is a modern comedy and the other a futuristic science fiction thriller, they both agree that office cubicles make for a a great "rat trapped in a maze" moment.

Stay Low to Escape

What's even crazier to me is that these films both came out within a few months of each other. Both use similar visuals, pacing, and tension to add drama to their tale.

As you think about creating your next project, don't be afraid to use a scene typically associated with a different genre. It may just work beautifully.
