Eleven-year-old David is the first android with human feelings. He is adopted by the Swinton family to test his ability to function. Before they are done testing him though David goes off on his own following his wish to be a human. He is on an odyssey to understand the secret to his existence. A science fiction film from Steven Spielberg taken over from Stanley Kubrick.
A graceful, yearnful masterwork of connection and evolving artificiality within the tattered seams of the human heart. Reflections, sunrises, and countless other grand images compliment a bittersweet story laced with impenetrable darkness.
Top 3 Spielberg.
Only Kubrick and Spielberg, working together on different time planes, could create such a philosophical and intellectual heartbreaker.
But in the beginning, didn't God create Adam to love him?
Its known that the elusive Kubrick was good friends with Steven Spielberg; the two brains even had dinner together and often talked for hours about their respective beliefs, influences and cinematic creations. What I would give to see, or hear those two talk...
Artificial Intelligence is the cinematic embodiment of those dinner table talks.
Obviously, the melding of minds between two titans of cinema was going to be a very peculiar project. A.I. is what some would like to describe as a rough handoff, or uneasy transition. The film was almost entirely conceptualized by the great Kubrick before being suddenly handed off to Spielberg a couple years short of…
A person recently told me that while he felt unprepared to raise children, he definitely intended to have them, sooner rather than later, with the hope that their existence would bring order and focus to a life lacking these attributes. This seems like a terrible but definitely not untypical plan, and the question is what kind of abuse, neglect, resentful behavior and other forms of parental distancing take place when (as must often be the case) children turn out not to be reliable emotional crutches or conveyers of constant feel-good vibes but flawed, idiosyncratic human beings for whom no reaction is yet normal or expected, adolescents who will be frustratingly strange and inadvertently terrifying until they've been exposed to enough…
"Why do you want to leave me? Why? I'm sorry I'm not real. If you let me, I'll be so real for you!"
The dawn lets everything in. The rays of the sun flow through the fractured lives of the suspended dust and the blinds of the half-opened windows. The birds greet humanity again with their gently soft whispers, and as you wake, the day is upon you. And yet, some don't wake along with the light. During the slumber of the night, among the stars gleaming against the void, loss occurs. It is peaceful, calm, and releasing; sending the spirit into a place unknown and undiscovered to those who live. We don't mourn the loss of a person, we mourn the memories that still ache within our hearts and our souls. Dreams are immeasurable, and the bonds from those dreams are unbreakable. Sleep is a gateway to connection.
I’ve been rolling over in my mind over the past day how to characterize Steven Spielberg’s A.I. Artificial Intelligence; is it a tribute, a homage, a love letter? No, I now think it was a debt of honor.
Stanley Kubrick was a geek. His wife Christiana once remarked that Stanley would be happy with five tape recorders and one pair of pants. He gave us what some feel is the greatest science fiction film of all time. He was fascinated not only with technology, but in the human condition. This is what brought us 2001, and the first credible filmic AI, HAL. HAL was part of our evolution. Part of the evolution of mankind.
Not too many years after 2001…
My heart must be filled with rocks.
Uma nove versão de pinoquio,um robo em forma de criança,para ter o amor da sua mãe ele tem o desejo de ser um criança humana assim volta pra casa.Um filme bonito e emocionante.
Kubrickian pessimism and Spielbergian optimism blend surprisingly well in this worryingly just-about-believable vision of what will happen when Apple finally get around to the iChild. Moral and ethical quandaries taint Spielbrick's uncannily realised world with an eerie discomfort about what we're capable of, matched only by the freaky weirdness conjured up by Haley Joel Osment (surely Stan Winston's greatest animatronic creation). A beautiful film but also a touching tribute to a friend; if anyone was going to bring Stanley Kubrick back to life for a heartbreakingly brief amount of time, it was Steven Spielberg.
Oh, how I would love to see this under Kubrick's direction.
The Spielberg-branded sentimentality is here in spades, but it's in service to the story's uncanny dilemma of love and artifice in programmed intelligence. The movie rides a careful line of unsettlement and warmth, ever oscillating between that which is truly terrifying and lovely.
15 years have passed and this film is still heartbreakingly naff.
The first time I saw this movie I was not very crazy about it. While I thought it was OK. I felt there was something missing. After watching it again I think I found it. I looked past the technical aspect of it and found the true heat of the story. While I won't say it is a great it is still better than I originally thought . My original rating was a 6/10 I am going to bump it slightly to a 7/10.
i have a lot of feelings about this one, but just one question...are A.I. and Ted set in the same universe??
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Content warning: life on the autism spectrum, introspection, crying, foster child, instance of young boys immaturely titillated over sex scenes in a movie (purpose of storytelling), domestic tension within foster home, treatment of autism spectrum disorders in the public school system, neurodivergents in media, depression, self-loathing, suicidal thoughts
I’ve never been able to shake off that feeling of shame for crying over cinema. To be sure, there’s the expected element of disappointment in one’s bullshit filter (as is reflexive for the cynic), but that doesn’t completely explain my hang-up over an intimate emotional response to a particular medium. Outside of film, I’ve been moved to tears by works, and yes, there are some I’ll fess up to (the last scene…
Completely blew me away.
I keep taking Spielberg for granted, really. Revisiting his films, it's clear that for every Bridge of Spies or Tin Tin, he's got something like A.I in him.
I can't believe I've never seen this all the way through until now.
It's a classic fairy tale, dressed as science fiction. And it's not even soft science fiction. This film deals with such huge ideas and themes that anyone other Kubrick and Spielberg would have driven themselves mad within a week of starting the project, never mind 30 years of it.
But, it's both a Kubrick and a Spielberg movie. Spielberg maintains that he simply built on what Kubrick had given him, but there are moments that…
