Print Club London is presenting a series of posters as part of this years Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House featuring 16 of their most popular artists. Each artist was asked to reimagine one of the movies that will be screening at the event and this image by Rose Blake beautifully captures a tender moment in 80’s hit film ‘E.T’. This poster will join the likes of Hattie Stewart's interpretation of 'Spring Breakers’ and a 'Ghostbusters’ inspired poster by Casper Williamson.
The exhibition runs from 31st July - 25th August at Somerset House.
One key question to interpreting the film Ex Machina is: Was Caleb truly a good person? Personally, I think the movie hints that maybe he wasn’t.
He only ever saw Ava as an empty fantasy object. Even when Nathan correctly points out to him that Ava was just manipulating him, Caleb is still fixated on her and is deluding himself into thinking they have have a future together.
He sees Kyoko being horribly abused. More than Ava ever was. But does he try to help her? No. Was she ever included in the escape plan? No. Because Kyoko wasn’t “girlfriend material” to him. So he ignored her.
Granted, Ava’s actions towards him at the end were callous as hell. But, then, didn’t Caleb intend to do the same thing to Nathan? Heck, he might have given her the idea.
Ava used Caleb. She was desperate to escape. But I think the real reason she left him to die at the end? She simply didn’t trust him.
Going by what Alex Garland has said, he never sympathized with Caleb much either.
