A.I. Artificial Intelligence — a visual study

You can count me among those who think A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) is one of the more underrated movies of the past decade.

It may only scratch the surface of what makes this semi-posthumous collaboration between Stanley Kubrick and Steven Speilberg so interesting, but the surface is a perfect place to start, and this video essay scratches it so well:

    great find. I can't wait to watch it again and look for more of these examples. I've always loved this film, but now even moreso. Tying the duality to the 2 directors is a stroke of genius too.
