Dozens and dozens of movies have tried to tackle artificial intelligence; few have come as close to getting it right as "Ex Machina." Unlike most films, this movie focuses on the experiments leading up to the birth of A.I. Utilizing the "Turing Test," our genius inventor invites an inquisitive coder from his search engine company to test his robot. With each test, we learn more and more about her, but it is a series of twist in turns in the plot that keeps you hooked. This is a film filled with a lot of "Aha" moments. I found myself guessing and second guessing myself. Until the credits rolled, I wasn't entirely sure if I was right; which was a relief. This movie made you think about the future we are approaching and if we are prepared to live with the consequences. After watching "Ex Machina," I am inclined to believe we are far from ready.
Thanks for entering my world,
