DIRECTOR: ALEX GARLAND
CAST: DOMNHALL GLEESON, OSCAR ISAAC, ALICIA VIKANDER, SONOYA MIZUNO
Oscar Isaac has the showy supporting part and a dance number for the ages and Domhnall Gleeson is the identification character, but Ex Machina secretly belongs to Alicia Vikander’s AI-gifted humanoid, seemingly offering up a passive “girlfriend experience” until a locked-doors Turing Test turns into a struggle for survival. A wickedly clever study in male vanity run amok, and one of the most singular sci-fi thrillers of recent years.
Ex Machina is screening as part of the series: The Singularity
