I can't describe Ex Machina as anything except a total mind fuck. The trailer tells you the story. I don't need to go into here. Needless to say any film that mentions the "Turing Test" in the first 5 minutes has my attention, I am that kind of wannabe geek.
Ava is AI. The first of her kind (or is she?) Because you have consciousness's does that mean you are moral? Does being self aware make you beholden to other people? These are the larger questions asked in this film. The comparisons to Frankenstein are quite valid. Who is the monster? The creature or the creator? Where did I leave my keys?
