Interview: Alex Garland Talks Lo-Fi Approach To 'Ex Machina'

Ex Machina is finally playing in Portland. I went to see it last Friday. There was hardly a seat free in the theater. Someone was there passing out surveys to get our thoughts after the movie. A new trailer for the film was posted online yesterday by A24 Films. I would describe Ex Machina as a sort-of Twilight Zone story... and I love the Twilight Zone. If you love science fiction, I recommend the movie. If you just a love a good story, I recommend this movie. It's disturbing and beautiful and the special effects are lovely. 

The thing about particularly low budget filmmaking is to be told the practical parameters and then to be as inventive as you can within them, and to try to find ways of making them into a virtue where possible.
