EX MACHINA

A solid and riveting sci fi/drama that depends more on performances and script than effects and gimmicks. While this doesn’t break any real new ground in the A.I. department (what makes us human?, do machines feel emotion? ), it’s impossible to not be sucked into the premise. A quieter Blade Runner, I have one complaint here that I had with that classic: too many long shots where the story grinds to a halt because the director has fallen in love with the mechanics of the moment instead of the movie as a whole. Not quite the new classic many have hailed it…but a welcome grown up movie in a summer of comic book/reboots/franchise flicks.
