EX_MACHINA is a true modern masterpiece. I knew I had to check out the movie since science fiction is one of my favorite genres of film. For anyone who hasn’t heard of this movie, it’s about a programmer who wins a chance to study a robot invented by the CEO of the company he works for. However, the robot named Ava appears to be more human than he anticipated. The best thing about this movie is the atmosphere. The dim lighting and small cast of characters is very unnerving. The special effects used for the robot are positively flawless. I was so happy to see it win Best Visual Effects. The ending (I won’t give away) is truly thought-provoking. See it, you won’t regret it.
