Bryant’s review published on Letterboxd:
Conceptually excellent. Take the AI ethics as a potential dilemma rather than a commentary on the 2023 LLM explosion; that said, Franklin Ritch did some research here and it helps the film seem exploratory rather than symbolic. There’s a through line to a real future here.
That said, it’s too technical. Tatum Matthews needs to sound a bit artificial as Cherry. Everyone else except Henriksen is also stilted, though, and for a movie this talky you need natural performances. You’re contrasting the natural and the artificial: there has to be contrast, at least until that lovely final scene.
I’m really interested in what Ritch does next.
