3 things about Alex Garland’s EX MACHINA

Ex Machina [2015]

1. A beautiful, useless stack of wood: the fireplace is just for show.
2. She pinches the skin under her eye and peels it back.
3. Just before the elevator door closes, a glance.

Fantastically stylish, well acted, evocative. The special effects are truly flawless. But wasn’t this basically an old Twilight Zone episode once upon a time? On the other hand, Nathan and his futuristic compound resemble nothing less than a James Bond villain in his lair.

  1. Amazingly concise review. I loved the film and thought the whole concept was great. The movie looked beautiful and Ava was brilliantly acted.
