    In the movie Ex Machina, the humanoids were capable of experiencing pleasure.

    It is polite, when discussing a movie still in theaters, to do this:

    SPOILERS (followed by a gap, so that readers who'd prefer to not have the movie given away can avert their eyes):


























    In the movie Ex Machina, we are not sure if the robots experienced pleasure. The robot said it was, but it was likely a deception it employed to manipulate the protagonist. It definitely did not feel empathy, love, remorse. It was by all human accounts a psychopath.

    Alex Garland, director of the movie, is handsome and has a nice voice. I'm seeing him and listening to him on Charlie Rose.

    Interesting movie title. Ex Machina is Latin for "from the machine". I know another form of the term from my theatre degree work: "Deus Ex Machina". With a late medieval Latin pronunciation that I'll approximate in my own phonetic spelling: "day-ous ex mock-ee-nah".

    Meaning "God from the machine". Medieval "miracle plays" often resolved plot dilemmas by having some Heavenly figure lowered by rope onto the stage from above on a crane (ex machina), to magically provide a happy, and mostly implausible, ending. I'd be curious if this movie contains any of those elements.

    Thanks for the reply.

    From the Machine - interesting

    God from the machine - yes, there was a play I was in and that term came up. Was that Fall '80 or Sp '81. Natchitoches, LA.

    Let me see if I google that what comes up, if anything.

    No, those days at Northwestern State University are decades ago.
