A very unusual film technique about people telling stories about their life. It makes the film very slow moving, and overlapping realities. Not everyone's cup of tea, but an interesting experiment in film making.
Very interesting idea about a product that will likely be available in the near future. The movie was very low key, with no energy in it. Would not watch it a second time.
I bet the play this film is based of is a great one to see on stage. The film, however, suffers with poor pacing and SO MUCH exposition. If I had known it was a play first then maybe I would have adjusted how I watched the film but I did not know before seeing the film. The premise/concept is still very intriguing.
Excruciatingly slow paced movie. (After 20 minutes I ran it a 1.5 X speed anD it was still agonizingly slow.) It may have been a commentary on death and dying, or it may have been a commentary on humans' increasing reliance on AI. I suppose the stiff, emotionless "acting" is excusable because the actors are playing AI images. No romance. No characters to identify with, and the script was a jumble. Save this for a night you need help falling asleep.
Great premise. Great play. So-so movie. It starts well but unravels about halfway through. Lois Smith, who plays Marjorie, is tremendous. Her first feature film was East of Eden with James Dean!
Warning - brand new copy from SFPL defective - stuck from the start.
An interesting premise and the struggles they’re dealing with. It’s not to difficult to watch Jon Hamm. He doesn’t even have to talk. Sometimes I got confused with what they were saying
Found it to be an odd movie. Watched to the end because I LIKE the actors. Don't think I enjoyed it much. Think the AI's had a better time than the real people.
This movie might be the most horrifying thing I've seen in the past 40 years. Not for anything scary in it, just because I can see this becoming our future.
A loved one dies, you don't deal with your grief, you get a "Prime", program it to be like your loved one and cling to the past.
In this movie a family becomes so dependent on this delusion they go through several "Primes" becoming more withdrawn from social interaction with each "Prime".
The "Primes" never seem to get more human. No emotions. No arguments. No change in tone. Just the same computer drone. And people accept this as a replacement for a lost loved one?
A truly scary glimpse into the future. Is this what a world of social media and self gratification is leading humans into?
