| Little plastic Robots
I saw this movie recently at an independent theater nearby, and after the film director and star Greg Pak was there to answer questions and answers. First of all, this small, bearded, laid-back man looked nothing like he did in the movie: a muscular, completely shaven, stiff robot. This small movie is very independent, made on a very small budget, and in a couple of the four short vignettes, that shows. The most touching segment is called "Clay," in which an old man must choose between a normal death or keeping his mind alive for ever. This is the most mysterious, most touching, smartest, and works the most on the small budget and resources. The other three are decent. Pak's movie has the simple message: that the human heart will always prevail, even if Robots take over most human activites. In the first segment, a woman embraces a little plastic robot that looks like an egg with eyes drawn on by a Sharpie marker. In the second one, an old woman searches the cities for little action figures that are supposed to be extremely valuable. In the third, a robot falls in love with another robot. The fourth is Clay. This movie is far from perfect, but the quirks and touches of human life are enough to see past the imperfections and inconsistencies.

My grade: 7/10
