Lent: Part 29

Ex Machina (2015) – In another case of trailers completely failing to convey the true sense of a movie (or possibly another case of me not paying much attention), I misjudged Ex Machina based on its trailers. I expected something that would be more in place in the 1970s sci-fi world, where some simplistic statements are made about the nature of humanity and the dangers of technology, wrapped up in some really tiresome statements about the nature of men and women (but especially women, am I right fellas). To be clear, that’s not at all what I came away with from Ex Machina. If anything, it made some statements about expecting those kind of things from it.
