Critic Reviews for Marjorie Prime
Michael Almereyda (Experimenter) directed, honoring the play's quiet solemnity and carefully crafted dialogue.
It's a topical treatise on memory and artificial intelligence that asks how the human brain works (or doesn't).
Hamm is note-perfect in the role, programmed to be charming and empathetic but prone to gaucheness when someone wrong-foots his software.
... a clever and affecting meditation on memory, bereavement, love and remorse masquerading as a sci-fi movie.
Audience Reviews for Marjorie Prime
I expected Marjorie Prime to present me with some sort of philosophical quandary, however, I expected that quandary to relate to the standard robot stuff: Identity, humanity, what it means to be alive, that old chestnut. Instead, Marjorie Prime philosophises about memory, and beyond that, truth. Still doesn't stop it from being pretty crap though.
In a gentler future than the one's proposed by Skynet artificial intelligence has it's metaphorical hands full just trying to figure us out, much less be our friend. A quiet,sedate, adult offering with meaty chunks to chew over and meditate on, this is best perhaps enjoyed on a rainy day. Resonant and smart. Intuitive.
An often fascinating science-fiction meditation on memory and one that proves that the genre doesn't need a large budget or even special effects to be convincing. Lois Smith remains a national treasure.
