The name of Nathan's search engine company, Blue Book, is a reference to philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein's "The Blue Book," which are notes on his lectures made between 1933 and 1934. See more »
When Ava presses her drawing against the glass to show it to Caleb, in one shot it slightly slips. Apparently the contact pressure of her hand changes over time to the point where the paper starts moving. Nathan designed his android bodies to be human-like, up to and including making small errors like this; it is entirely consistent with her behavior in the rest of the movie. See more »

This is the kind of movie I really enjoy when I think about science fiction. Movies that make you think if we should continue trying to progress even more. Are we not already smart enough with everything we have? With all our daily gadgets that we can't miss for one second. Do we really need artificial intelligence? Because let's face it, once that will be concrete then we won't do a thing by ourselves anymore. We will send our robots to our job, we will chose and model our life partner like we want them to be. The story of Ex Machina might be futuristic but I certainly can imagine it like that in the future. All actors were good in their respective roles. For a movie that is filmed at the same spot all the time you certainly don't get bored for a second. Nice science fiction like there should be more of them.
