“C’mon buddy. After a long day of Turing tests you gotta unwind.”

Written by Alex Garland — he of 28 Days Later, Dredd, and Sunshine, among others — Ex Machina (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was another claustrophobic set piece about the will to live, even when things aren’t as they seem. It built tension slowly, like most of his films, but didn’t have quite the payoff I was looking for. Still, very entertaining.
