Aro Favourite A.I. Artificial Intelligence

 

USA 2001, 140 minutes
Dir. Steven Spielberg
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction / Futurism

Topics: Post-Apocalyptic.

 

Aroview: Speculative sci-fi at its most fascinating and opaque, this project developed by Stanley Kubrick is comparable to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY in thought, scope and epic duration.

Encompassing the near and remote future, it shows the quest of an android child (Haley Joel Osment) invested with the capacity to love, to “become a real boy”, negotiating a world of ‘mechas’, ‘orgs’, ‘flesh-fairs’ and whole cities devoted to robot sex, a world in which humankind itself is mightily confused.

Due to a few languid sections, this found more critical than audience appreciation, but its fairytale mood and advanced ideas do benefit from being savoured as opposed to gulped down at action-pace. From a short-story by Brian Aldiss.
