Ex Machina Cin­ema

GT (UK) - - SCREEN -

Even if you haven’t heard of him, there’s a good chance you’re fa­mil­iar with Alex Gar­land’s work. Hav­ing writ­ten The Beach, 28 Days Later, Sun­shine and Dredd, his di­rec­to­rial de­but is of im­me­di­ate in­ter­est. Thank­fully, Ex Machina is a psy­cho­log­i­cal sci-fi thriller of the smartest, most stylish or­der.

Com­puter coder Caleb (Domh­nall Glee­son) wins a golden ticket to spend a week with his reclu­sive bil­lion­aire boss Nathan (Os­car Isaac) in his moun­tain re­treat, and soon re­alises his pur­pose – to test the next leap in ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, a hu­manoid ro­bot named Eva (Ali­cia Vikan­der). Su­perbly acted, serenely shot and mag­netic un­til the last shot.
