    ★★★★

    I thought Ex_Machina was great the whole way through. I loved the sort of eerie atmosphere at the start and how that eeriness transcended throughout the story into something more mysterious and frightening. The way the colours contradict each other, a constant theme of blue and red showing how different humans are to machines but also hinting at a good vs evil balance. Leaving us, the audience, to decide who’s evil and who’s good.

    This film is absolutely astonishing. I don’t think love has been portrayed in a film as well as Portrait of a Lady on Fire did. It sums up perfectly what it means to love someone, starting out with awkward looks and then slowly merging together over time to the point where you know how one another thinks and acts.
