My personal interpretation is that the "matrix" is a good metaphor for
bourgeois ideology.  The pill that causes the character Neo to see through
the "matrix" could be seen as analogous to Marxism.

The filmmakers may have simply wanted to make an action film with some
intelligence and lots of flashy effects, but the story is open to multiple
(and personal) interpretations.  I've even seen a Buddhist interpretation.
