The Artifice Girl: Directed by Franklin Ritch. With Tatum Matthews, Lance Henriksen, Sinda Nichols, David Girard. A team of special agents discovers a revolutionary new computer program to bait and trap online predators. After teaming up with the program’s troubled developer, they soon find that the AI is rapidly advancing beyond its original purpose.
There’s only three sets in this entire movie and only 5 or 6 actors with the entire thing being a talking head exercise in discussing exactly what the computer program is and just how much it’s capable of in three different time periods. It may sound like a snooze fest, but I’m happy with what they actually covered, ranging from emotional accusations of possible time in prison to possibly releasing an AI onto an unsuspecting world and what could happen. It’s by no means a visually captivating movie, but it certainly kept my attention with the rapid style conversations.
