SBS, 9.30pm, ( 2014)
Oscar Isaac ( Star Wars: The Force Awakens) shines in this dark and infectious drama about artificial intelligence, innovation and the lengths the human race goes to for all- consuming power. Isaac plays Nathan, a young programmer and recluse whose latest project is a breakthrough in lifelike robots and spot- on artificial intelligence. But whenever man and machine become irrevocably linked, things are sure to go haywire as they quickly do once research assistant Caleb ( Domhnall Gleeson) falls in love with beautiful new prototype Ava ( Alicia Vikander). Director Alex Garland, in his feature debut, captures our attention completely. One to see on repeat. Scintillating sci- fi: Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson.
