I adopted, it seems, Falken's view of civilization and humanity and desire for their extinction (although ameliorated by the end of the movie, but still extant in me).
And Josua, the AI computer, created my interest in machine intelligence, a current obsession, as you know.
The movie, along with The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Thing From Another World (and Melville's Moby Dick), shaped my being more than I thought.
What movie, book or other entertainment, affected you, likewise?
I'm interested in knowing.
