Ex Machina ★★★★½

I really didn't want to like this going in and also during. I don't really know why and I can't really explain it, but I think it's something to do with the fact that this movie and its character Nathan feel like a silicon valley tech bro's wet dream come true. "Hey look, I created a real 3d waifu who's as submissive as a 2d one, isn't this the dream?"

But it quickly brushes past that and starts delving into some honestly very terrifying areas, and at no point in the entire movie was I free of tension and doubt until the very end. I don't know if this should be called a horror movie, but it's certainly one of the most uncomfortable and unsafe I've felt while watching a movie.
