Masterpiece, a work of art is how I would describe Ex Machina as a film because Alex Garland would not be able to outdo himself with what he has offered through this. Science fiction as a genre is something that I prefer to stay away from as a matter of choice but I would definitely recommend Ex Machina because it is a must watch.
The story revolves around Caleb played by Domhnall Gleeson who wins a competition and is selected to go to a retreat in order to participate in an intriguing experiment about a humanoid robot functioning on AI through his CEO. The nuances in the film have been expertly handled and the contrast in terms of the characters and the locales is mesmerising. Alicia Vikander nails the portrayal of the humanoid as is convincing in the character.
Similarly, the movie raises pertinent points which make you ponder and you linger on the subject long after the movie has finished.
