yeah; he's said before that if he had his way, he'd do nothing but little indie films, because he loves those best. But his agent and Hollywood kept trying to get him to do big blockbuster things. Now that his Matrix fame has sort of waned, he's finally getting to do the stuff he really wants - he produced the documentary Side by Side, which got great critical acclaim (more than his acting ever has); and his directorial debut Man of Tai Chi (which will be mostly in Chinese) is slated for release next year. He's also been working on scripts, like Passengers, which he did with Jon Spaihts and is one of the best scripts I've ever read.

In recent interviews he seems really happy with where his career is now, which somewhat counters the idea of a has-been.
