I’m still thinking about what I watched, which is to say that Ex Machina is an extraordinary motion picture experience and one of the greatest films about technology gone awry ever. Period. The film succeeds on so many levels I don’t know where to start. My highest compliment goes out to well-constructed fantasy films that unfold with the viewer hardly taking note that the technical achievement is attained through trickery. I know now what audiences must have thought upon first viewing Georges Méliès A Trip to the Moon. I doubt any movie of the year or for that matter a few years down the road, will achieve the level of art, entertainment and aftermath of Ex Machina. Eva (Alicia Vikander) is to modern film what Maria was to Metropolis. The film is a masterpiece and superior to many films ranked as science fiction classics.
