Screening – EX MACHINA (New York)
British Independent Film Awards
Outstanding Achievement in Craft (Visual Effects)
“In the history of the movies, there may be no robot more alluring, more eerily fascinating to look at, than Ava, the star and subject of EX MACHINA.”
Ty Burr, The Boston Globe
“Ava has enough allure and cunning to become a classic noir robot vixen – an apocalyptic, silicon femme fatale.”
Maureen Dowd, The New York Times
“One reason for the success of EX MACHINA is that Ava is such a remarkable and compelling creation. Her look is an edgy combination of human and machine.”
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), an A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined. Written and directed by Alex Garland.
