    While the narrow view of the tragedy means a limit to the movie’s broader appeal, it’s intensely refreshing to see a story like this told without any need to soften or commercialize its ideas.

    It’s both a learning experience and an emotional reminder of what can go wrong in that gray area separating man and machine.
