On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
Sometimes limited release films fly under the radar until they just get enough buzz that they can no longer stay there. This is the case with Ex Machina. We thought about talking about this on the podcast when it was in limited release earlier in the year but enough of us simply could not catch it while in theaters. With its release on streaming, it has finally developed a wider audience and deservedly so. A thrilling sci-fi story about AI and man’s relation to it unfold in what ends up being a very simple, yet very beautiful smaller film. This film gives us plenty to try chat about– especially the ending.
This week’s panel included Blaine Grimes and Josh Larsen.
