#Movie Review: "Ex Machina"

How do you know if an artificial intelligence (or AI), really is sentient?

Ex Machina explores this problem with stars Alicia Vikander, Oscar Isaac, and Domhnall Gleeson.

From Google:

"Caleb Smith a programmer at a huge Internet company, wins a contest that enables him to spend a week at the private estate of Nathan Bateman, his firm's brilliant CEO. When he arrives, Caleb learns that he has been chosen to be the human component in a Turing test to determine the capabilities and consciousness of Ava, a beautiful robot. However, it soon becomes evident that Ava is far more self-aware and deceptive than either man imagined."

So what did I think of this film? It was a well-acted, low-budget, highproduction value, interesting narrative!

Philosophical questions are rarely answered so entertainingly...

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
