This thread carried of from a discussion in a previous thread. __________________________________________________ __________ The film brings up all sorts of questions about the nature of existence and love, but allows you to make up your own mind about David ? Yes, he isn’t human, as he is made up of machinery, but is his existence and wish to be loved any less valid than our own ? How should he be treated ? At what point do you draw the line between “reality” and “artificiality” ? Throughout the entire film, David is treated by the human characters as an object, a piece of property, which you might get attached to, but if it breaks, you can always get another one? As the film progresses you start to sympathize with David because you, the audience, feel he is more than just an object (or I did anyway) Thus I began to feel more for the character. But at the end, the scenes with David in the house with the artificial “Monica”, and his blind acceptance of her love, to me reinforced David’s artificiality.
