Saw the dark and sombre A.I sometime ago. Couldnt understand it at all. I mean, yeah - I got the profound questions alright - what makes someone or something human, the moral dilemma of how one would treat an artificial 'mecha' etc., but it was so unlike Spielberg, and I couldnt understand the ultimate point of the movie - I found it very contrived. I might have enjoyed a treatement of pinnochi in the same intellectual vein more.

And imagine waiting for an eternity, with no other option, for love. Boy, I was glad, unlike the mechas, I can shut myself down if it comes to that. Or can I?
