    Hard to avoid Black Mirror comparisons, which this story likely would have done just as well in. 

    Hard to believe he didn’t twig that Kyoko was a robot after that strangely placed dance sequence.

    I had a hard time settling on the rating for this one largely because I loved it  after my first watch in 2008. 
    Second time around, my brain kicked in. I just couldn't get over the ethics, science and general lack of reality that was necessary to pull on heartstrings. Give me some lawyers getting in the way of donor requests and ACTUAL SCIENTIFICALLY POSSIBLE transplants, and you might get another star out of me.

    Some of the aesthetic and overhead shots were so great! That deserves a half star. The other half star goes to the sheer amazement I have that this script would get greenlit.
