Top 5 Keanu Reeves movies on Netflix
1) The Matrix (1999)
The first installment of one of the most iconic sci-franchises of all time, The Matrix was a game-changer both for the film industry and Keanu Reeves’ career.

2) Always Be My Maybe (2019)
Always Be My Maybe was definitely the rom-com of 2019. Telling the story of two childhood-friends-turned-lovers who reunite after 15 years apart, this film is the classic “best friends fall in love” tale—but with one shocking Keanu Reeves cameo that’s as magnificent as it is hilarious.

Zach Galifianakis is a master interviewer, and he brings the best of his absurdist flair in the movie version of his talk show, Between Two Ferns.
