Trivia

When Caleb sits down at Nathan's computer and begins coding, the code he types is for an algorithm called the "Sieve of Eratosthenes," an algorithm for finding prime numbers. However, it also chooses prime numbers that form an ISBN = 9780199226559. This ISBN is for the book "Embodiment and the Inner Life: Cognition and Consciousness in the Space of Possible Minds," a book about the history of Artificial Intelligence. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the movie, Ava speaks with an American accent. However, when she asks personal questions of Caleb, upon asking "What about your family?", she uses a very distinct British accent. See more »

Brilliant! Watch it
1 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

A brilliant movie, I truly enjoyed it.

In brief: four characters, one location, excellent dialog, clever script, good acting. This is film-making.

It is a thought provoking, a bit eerie, and leaves you with a "holy crap" feeling when its done. When it ended I was like "who wrote this? what else has he done so far. gotta watch it"..

They did so much in this film with such a small budget. In a better world this movie would be celebrated in cinemas worldwide and not left for torrent down-loaders.

Warm recommendation! :)
