directed the dark science-fiction movie A.I. Artificial Intelligence
from a project originally developed by Stanley Kubrick before he died. Young Haley Joel Osment
is simultaneously creepy and heartbreaking as the mechanical boy who will literally wait until the end of time to be held in his mother's arms one more time. The film also features a memorable performance by Jude Law as a robotic gigolo in a futuristic neon-lit city who tries to help the boy on his quest.
A.I. will become the latest Spielberg film to debut on Blu-ray on February 15. The BD contains several in-depth making-of featurettes, "Steven Spielberg: Our Responsibility to Artificial Intelligence" and the "A.I. Archives." What the disc needs is some kind of recent proof that Osment is not a robot, because we're still not convinced.
