3 Essential Films on Technology Addiction

Celebrating the premiere of Breaking News, a Ukranian comedy about a young and successful professional whose addiction to technology ends up almost costing his life, we have selected three essential films on the subject. These productions prove that all excesses will have a bad consequence in your life!

Her

One of the most eye-opening movies about what technology could become in our lives, Her stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Scarlett Johansson. Set in a dystopian future, the film tells the story of a lonely writer that develops an unlikely relationship with an operating system designed to meet his every need.

Her received numerous awards and nominations. At the 86th Academy Awards, the movie earned five nominations, including Best Picture, and won the award for Best Original Screenplay. Jonze also won awards for his screenplay at the 71st Golden Globe Awards, the 66th Writers Guild of America Awards, the 19th Critics' Choice Awards, and the 40th Saturn Awards.

The Matrix

An icon of science fiction, The Matrix changed the perception of cinema and technology for a whole generation. Starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano, this first installment of the saga depicts a dystopian future in which humanity is unknowingly trapped inside a simulated reality, the Matrix, created by intelligent machines to distract humans while using their bodies as an energy source.

The Matrix received Academy Awards for film editing, sound effects editing, visual effects, and sound. The film also received BAFTA awards for Best Sound and Best Achievement in Special Visual Effects, in addition to nominations in the cinematography, production design and editing categories.

Transcendence

Starring a cast of iconic actors, including Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, and Cillian Murphy, Transcendence is a science fiction thriller in which a scientist's drive for artificial intelligence, takes on dangerous implications when his consciousness is uploaded into one such program. Dr Will Caster seeks to be at the top of his game when it comes to artificial intelligence. However, his thirst to perfect it backfires.
