What better way to re-open the Ulster Film Office than with this meditative artificial intelligence blockbuster?
An Ulster Film Office event..
On initial release, 1988 audiences were taken to new levels of cinema consciousness by R.O.T.O.R.’s cautionary tale of the development of a prototype robot police officer (or “robo – cop”, if you will). Powered by a gritty and existentialist screenplay from academy award winner Budd Lewis along with now legendary innovative visual effects, R.O.T.O.R simultaneously delivers both questions and answers to the true nature of sentience plus heartstopping, balls-to-the-wall violence in spades! Fans of Ghost In The Shell, Ex Machina and Robo Vampire will not be disappointed.
