Recommended. This is one where I agree with everyone else; I really enjoyed Ex Machina. British writer - - now director - - Alex Garland’s (28 Days Later...) robo-femme-fatale flick is constantly entertaining and much less obscure than the mildly similar, and despicable, Under the Skin. This movie was better because the seduction of the male was more clever and ambiguous, making Ava the Android (Alicia Vikander, A Royal Affair) a real character . . . not just a trope on male stupidity. I won’t be a spoiler by revealing her motives but I was delightfully unsure until the ending. Domhnall Gleeson (Anna Karenina) - - sort of a young David Thewlis (Naked) - - plays Ava’s Turing tester and Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) creates Ava's hipster Frankenstein. All three of these previously lauded actors are marvelous herein. The question of whether this is a misogynistic or feminist film, I’ll leave open . . . although loyal readers should quickly guess my opinion.
