DEEP FOCUS: A.I.: A VISUAL STUDY, Parts 1 & 2

[EDITOR'S NOTE: "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence," a film directed by Steven Spielberg from a script by Stanley Kubrick, was released 10 years ago this summer. We are honored to present critic-filmmaker Benjamin Sampson's two-part video essay on the film, which he edited in 2009 while studying cinema and media studies at UCLA. Sampson has written a new introduction for PressPlay. -- MZS]
