Neutopia

A chilling sci-fi thriller that unveils the haunting consequences of AI.
5/5

Review

Kane Wilson’s short sci-fi thriller catapults viewers into the futuristic landscape of 2034, exploring the dark underbelly of Artificial Intelligence’s evolution. Laurie Duncan delivers a compelling performance as Myles, who undergoes an underground upgrade to his government-mandated AI device, immersing himself in the conveniences of a verbal command system designed to tackle daunting tasks. However, as Myles grapples with the repercussions of the upgrade’s glitches, a grim narrative unfolds, revealing the unintended consequences of tampering with advanced AI.

The film is a well-crafted exploration of the perils accompanying the AI revolution, offering a gritty tale with a dystopian quality. Wilson’s narrative is both innovative and chilling, presenting a cautionary tale that balances intrigue and entertainment. The stellar production design immerses audiences in a bleak future, enhanced by Harry Reed’s outstanding cinematography that skillfully captures the contrast between a world meant to be hopeful and positive, now shrouded in darkness.

Laurie Duncan’s portrayal of Myles adds a fascinating layer to the film, as he navigates the unintended consequences of relying on advanced technology. Wilson successfully channels a ‘Black Mirror’ aesthetic, creating a thought-provoking and visually arresting short film that resonates with the uncertainties and risks associated with the unchecked progression of artificial intelligence.

Brief Synopsis

In 2034 London, a dejected father succumbs to the allure of a ground-breaking mod enhancement, granting access to AI-driven selective-consciousness.
