Saw this one over the weekend and enjoyed it quite a bit. A lower level programmer wins a company contest. The prize is a retreat to the CEO's home for a week to help with a secret project. Said project is to determine whether an AI robot that the boss created is actually self aware. Fairly simple premise but executed beautifully and tastefully. The film's aesthetic and soundtrack put me in the mind of a depressing, somber 70s sci-fi flick. It is mostly character and dialog driven, not a Michael Bay explosion a second hyper ADD mess. The few characters all give great performances and the film makes you think too. Highly recommended to any sci-fi fan.

A co-worker talked to me about it. Sounds cool.

Watched this one earlier this year and really liked it. Smart sci-fi.
