A.I. Artificial Intelligence
A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Released 2001, Color Feature Film, UK/USA, 146min, Directed by Steven Spielberg.
Spielberg and Kubrick were in talks in the 1990's to work on this film together (Kubrick would Produce, Spielberg to Direct). After Kubrick's untimely death in 1999, Spielberg and Kubrick's long-time producing partners (Jan Harlan, et al) completed AI with the guidance of Kubrick's detailed research, development, and surviving staff. The film was dedicated to Kubrick posthumously and he is named as a Producer. Many critics feel AI is a wonderful mix of Kubrick and Spielberg's styles and tastes. TRIVIA: AI also briefly features the webmaster's former early 1990's roommate, Kathryn Morris, in a scene at the Flesh Fair that was mainly cut out of the film. She would later star as a primary character in Spielberg's Minority Report, and become a household name via a long-running network television series, Cold Case.
