Demon Seed

I've been having some amazing retro discoveries this year. This is not one of them.

Interesting that Koontz's original idea of Proteus (even though it all goes back to Hal) has a semblance to Alexa but the execution is so absurd that it's hard to imagine this was ever taken seriously. So many questions in the film's logic... can't even begin. Supposedly not Donald Cammell's fault. I read he intended this to be a comedy and the studio wanted a series sci-fi thriller.

Shot by Bill Butler (Jaws) but in my opinion, one of his least accomplished from that era.

Watched Warner Archive's Blu-ray. No extras besides the trailer.
