This film surprised me to say the least. For a film that has such powerful messages, great acting, and great production and costume design, I am stunned. My guess is that it's viewed as a lesser Spielberg film, and is overshadowed. Nonetheless, this film took me from curiosity, to despair, to wonderment, and to sadness. It encompasses a range of emotions as the A.I. goes on his journey in life and those emotions help you see his world in a way that transcends time. This film has cyberpunk, it has Metropolis-esque buildings, and most of all it has a robot that wants nothing else but to be loved. I rate this movie a 10 out of 10 because its a beautiful film with many nods to classic and modern sci-fi.
