generation hex

Including several hipster categories, an onion skin mask over a caricature of Galt-Roark objectivist behavior in a Galt's Gulch setting, a parallel parody of Zuckerberg-Brin-Page, another batch of xenothespians hired to do USA native accents including a Scot playing a Portland OR native who sometimes does Lawn Guyland inflection, a Swede who lapses between Queen's English and overenunciator selfconscious middle class American who wants to be upper middle, and a South American doing a Brooklyn hiding behind Top Tech PhD filter.

This and much more is worth 1 hr 48 mins of your time.

Ex Machina

The credits roll while a song by some Siouxsie & Banshees clone plays, pushing your listening mind back to around 1982. A search on BlueBook says the song is "Husbands" by a band called Savages. It doesn't fit with the movie all that much aesthetically but the lyrics may suggest something about Ava's hivemind existentialism.

I have heard the movie is very misogynistic, and paints a good picture of what America would be like if libertarians ran the country. It seems like it would be all full of triggers and as a result, very unwatchable.
