Ep. 341: A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)

31Oct

Episode 314 sees the GenreCast boys get together to cover another total blindspot in Steven Spielberg's A.I. Artificial Intelligence. A project initially undertaken by Stanley Kubrick, A.I. Artificial Intelligence passed to Spielberg following Kubrick's death in 1999. The film's thirty-year journey finally was completed in 2001 when it opened to middling box office and mixed-to-positive reviews. A.I. Artificial Intelligence is the story of a mecha named David, modeled after a child, who goes on a journey of discovery. In doing so, David encounters mechas, humans, his maker and much more. We talk all about authorship, saccharine stories, what it means to be human, and that ending. Tune in now to see where we land on this divisive movie.
