Ex Machina

Category: Life,Opinions

So, I saw Ex Machina today and it was absolutely stunning. Don’t worry, I don’t write spoilers, ever.

This isn’t a full-review, I just have to say, right now, Ex Machina is totally one of the best films about Artificial Intelligence I’ve ever seen. It’s intimate, intense, sensual, provocative, terrifying.

I’ll do a full review, but just go see it.

    I haven’t been excited about a lot of films lately, but I really, really want to see this!!

    So, I just want to let you know that whether you realize it or not, you are an inspiration to others. I was introduced to your episode of “This American Life” by a fellow teacher many years ago and have shown it to the students in my classroom every year since. I use it to talk about the idea of conflict, and how conflict differs based on one’s point of view and personal circumstances. As of recently I no longer teach, as I am busy raising my son, but for some reason your story has always stuck with me. Every day you write and update your blog, you show the world you are capable of so much more than what would appear so just by looking at your unique situation. You are so lucky to have left an imprint in the world like so many hope to, but are unable to. Thank you for teaching me, as well as my hundreds of students over the years, that everyone (regardless of physical ability) is capable of love, pain, fear, success, and most of all, living life. I continue to enjoy reading about your concert experiences, political stances, and tattoos. Keep on keeping on, Mike.

    Cool, I’ll have to check it out. The only other movies I’ve seen about AI is of course ‘AI’ and the one with Robert Duvall who gets the care taker robot. Oh yeah, then there was ‘Her’. I liked them all.

    I just saw a trailer for a new AMC series called ‘Humans’ about humanistic robots that seems like it will be interesting.

    I look forward to your full review.
