Ex Machina (2014)

Ex Machina

Directed by Alex Garland

2014 • R • English • 108 min.

Chamber piece where a computer programmer spends a week with an internet billionaire (played by the always great Oscar Issac) and the billionaire’s robot girlfriend. As often happens in this sort of situation, the robot girlfriend has gained sentience and has greater aspirations than living in the woods with a rich jerk. Director Alex Garland has a great eye, and the visual effects are beautiful in their subtlety.

Stars: Alicia Vikander, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac
