AUTOMATA - Antonio Banderas
Here's one of my favorite post-apocalyptic movies of all time, AUTOMATA (2014).
Blade Runner 2049 is a strong first, budgets not withstanding. I know both these movies have been playing for some time, but in my opinion, they are both classics and demand to be seen on a large theater screen.

I love the stark, desolate landscape and the Automata robots, who try to get along with their human counterparts but to no avail can they co-exist, as survival hangs in the balance.

This is Ibáñez first feature film and I must say that he's on to something with the look and feel of this low budget thriller that does not disappoint. Great performances throughout, starring, Antonio Banderas, Dylan Mcdermott, and Melanie Griffith. A strong story-line carries the sparse narrative to a satisfying conclusion.

Banderas rarely gets the credit he deserves but from here, he's always on top of his game. Check him out in HBO's Genius Picasso, one of his best performances. (Hey, he's always amazing.)

I think this film is still playing on Netflix.
