A fake documentary in faked black and white about fake intelligence. I’ll avoid the cliché by simply commending the acting. For once a movie gets nerds right as I know them. These nerds are the highly intelligent programmers of computer chess software, assembled at a hotel to pit their machines against one another. In the same conference room are New Age searchers doing couple’s therapy before them throughout the movie. A malfunctioning program from the Caltech machine, Tsar 3.0, provides a throughline; it is heavily implied the machine has developed some sort of consciousness, and dark whisperings of the Pentagon & DARPA. A movie that speaks very well for itself, and is hard to speak for.
