Alex Garland Directional Debut "Ex Machina"

The script was sooo good. I'm hoping they don't change a damn thing.
 
VERY good movie, and considering its Garlands first directorial effort, even more impressive. The CGI on Ava is the definition of seamless, and all 3 leads give great performances. I will look forward to what Garland does next, 8.5/10.
 
That whirring sound coming from Ava is almost hypnotic. Alicia Vikander is a beauty. :hrt:

Yeah I couldnt figure out at first whether it was coming from the cinema itself or the movie! The sound effects were really good and really helped sell that Ava was a robot.

The less you know the better, it does have some nice twists, so avoid best you can, its well worth it.
 
Does anyone think a sequel could be interesting?

It would be good to know what is going to happen to Caleb, people are going to recognise he didnt go back to work, and he may figure a way out of the house. Also, it would be really interesting to see Ava interacting with the rest of humanity.

But another part of me would like it to just be left as it is.

Yeah I'm pretty conflicted too.
On one hand I love the ending, its perfect, but yeah part of me wants to know what Ava would do next as she learns more about the world and gets more interaction with people without anyone knowing that she was in fact an A.I. but I think overall it works best overall as a stand alone project. Some films just dont need a sequel and this feels like one of them. Plus the characters of Caleb and Nathan would be hard to replace.
 
I really hope there is no sequel. It was too good for that.
 
I read the script and this is a great fanboy fantasy. I had no problem with it cause of the ending. :cwink:

My gal friend on the other hand, she thought this was very sexist. This true? I don't know how much they changed.

I think Caleb would come back, people at his workplace are going to notice he isn't there and enquiries will be made.

But yeah, i would be perfectly happy for it to be left as it is.

What exactly did she think was sexist? Ive not read the script so dont know if anything changed?
 
My review of the film (gave it a 10/10, seriously adore it :)).

And in response to the above, i'm a girl, and I didn't find it 'sexist'. Sexism was certainly an aspect of the film, but in a critical way.

Hope you enjoy!

What is it about the ending, that was deemed to be possibly sexist?
 
I know I'm a guy but I honestly didn't think there was any sexism in the movie, non that wasn't meant to be there anyway.
 
For fans of the music in the film, here's a class tune.
