A.I. TALES REVIEWED
“A.I. Tales” is a Sci-Fi anthology that showcases four Black Mirror style tales. Eric Roberts and Pom Klementieff show up in smaller supporting roles, as individuals either using tech or being victimized by it. The human drama angle is played up for tales about people sacrificing themselves to a future where the Earth can’t support them. Whether it’s due to overpopulation or the desire to flee into the stars, the FX get toned down for the weepy. The rest are standard looks into how tech empowers authority.
So, what’s the big takeaway? A.I. can turn the future into a frightening hellscape? It’s pretty obvious that these four short films are sandwiched together to produce something marketable as a fature. I just wish a little more time was spent making them flow naturally.
