Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 262: Sat Sep 20

AI: Artificial Intelligence (Spielberg, 2001): Albert & Victoria Museum, 7pm

Victoria & Albert Museum introduction:
Watch A.I. Artificial Intelligence and hear Professor Mark Bishop, a world authority on computer intelligence, introduce the dazzling sci-fi created by Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg.
Tracing its genesis in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange, Professor Bishop discusses the movie's robot child with current developments in A.I. technology and philosophy.

This event is part of the London Design Festival at the V&A 2014

Chicago Reader review:
A collaboration between the living Steven Spielberg and the late Stanley Kubrick seems appropriate to a project that reflects profoundly on the differences between life and nonlife. Kubrick started this picture and came up with the idea that Spielberg should direct it, and after inheriting a 90-page treatment Kubrick had prepared with Ian Watson and 600 drawings he'd done with Chris Baker, Spielberg finished it in so much his own manner that it may be his most personal film, as well as his most thoughtful. It might make you cry; it's just as likely to give you the creeps—which is as it should be. This is a movie people will be arguing about for many years to come.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
