Well, I'm intrigued. Ex Machina was my probably my favorite film of 2014.

No, I take that back. I checked and 2014 was a fucking great year for film:

This one's a tad spoilery.

For the international Xixaxerz watching this on Netflix: See it on a big screen.
That is, the biggest TV you've got, if you can, and not on your mobile.

A tense, humanist sci-fi. Garland, emboldened by the Oscar win, no doubt, manifests spiritual hypotheticals through LSD fractals, practical effect set pieces, a nightmarish sequence of dance, and the most beautiful corpses I've seen since Bryan Fuller's Hannibal. The textures and details within production design here ask you to interact, investigate what growth like this would mean for you. If you can get past the film's exposition, it becomes a sci-fi Tibetan Book of the Dead . Very moving stuff here about how we process our own mental state, and how external environments figure into all moods.
