Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.09.14] cyberpunk scifi action thriller

For all you science fiction fans who complain that nobody's releasing original or thought provoking genre fare into cinemas, this is your chance to put your money where your mouth is and head to the theatres to see Gabe Ibáñez's stellar Automata (review).

So, what's it about? In a dystopian future, Antonio Banderas plays as insurance agent who investigates claims against defective robots. The robots (dubbed "Pilgrims") are governed by Asimovian laws of robotics that cannot be undone. But, when seemingly self-repaired robots starts turning up , it quickly becomes apparent that something, or someone is aiding the robots become sentient.

Automata is atmospheric and stylish and rides a visual line between Blade Runner, through Minority Report to District 9. I think you'll find it's worth a trip to the threatres to see it on the big screen.

Automata also stars Dylan McDermott, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Melanie Griffith and Robert Forester.

Automata hits select theaters across the U.S. on Friday, October 10 so check out the website to see if it's in your city.

"original?" bit tough to describe it at that. But VERY well crafted. I heard it was only a $15 million budget. Hollywood should learn from this guy!
