That could be because it plays out the confusion so many of us are experiencing. We wonder:
What is real?
What does it mean to act even part-human?
Whom can we trust?
Has a machine-consciousness taken over the world?
This inner turmoil we feel is depicted in the film by the LAPD officer. Later as he embraces a half-human identity he comes to think of himself as "Joe."
He starts out in the job of hunting down and "retiring" the first batch of robots which came to rebel.
Then he has an internal paradigm shift. He searches for what is real and what is not. What is right and what is not. Does there exist a human born of robot - who has a soul.
That brings him in contact with a group determined to live outside The Machine Consciousness. Joe probably will never know if he is real or robot. Is his memory of a past actual childhood an implanted memory?
But Joe earns the satisfaction of re-uniting the rebel who fathered a human child with that daughter. For Joe that seems enough. He totally reclines in the snow on the steps of where father and daughter bond. Is that surrender? Or just a pause as he continues his search?
Who doesn't have the Joe mindset in these strange times? Nothing, except the love of my dog, seems all-that-real.
