A Is For A.I. Artificial Intelligence


 

A.I was planned and prepped by Stanley Kubrick, then taken over by Steven Spielberg after the auteur’s untimely death. The resulting film is a strange mix of the two director’s signature styles, and even now it polarises opinion.

and if you want to know more, what better than a peek at the film itself? Don’t say we never give you anything!

POSTCAST: one should always watch the credits for interesting nuggets. Visual effects for Android were supervised by a certain Jim Cameron. I’m sure we’ll see more of him…
