Can I come down from Chicago and enter - the real world?

It's hard to be so excited about the sequel to The Matrix and to have to turn away from all of the media articles that might provide spoilers. Just one article in Entertainment Weekly told me much too much. I want to be surprised by new characters, not get to know their cleavage intimately before we meet face to face. But the New York Times has an article that's informative without telling too much:

"A man learns that his life is a dream; to realize his full potential (or self-actualize), he must break through to the "real" reality ... For the Gnostics, this prison was a consequence of mankind's imperfect creation; for Baudrillard, the upshot of our materialism and dependence on technology; for paranoid science fiction writers like Dick, a plot by nefarious government entities with access to advanced technology to control our destinies."
