From the Daily Dot
The bumbling, technology-gone-awry Netflix thriller TAU accompanies the street-smart Julia (Maika Monroe) who ends up captive in the experiment of a demented (supposed) genius named Alex (Ed Skrein). Her frenemy, Tau, is an advanced A.I. developed by Alex, who protects the futuristic house with creepy drones. Veteran Marvel storyboard artist Federico D'Alessandro fails to spice up a well-worn trope in his debut feature, and by the end of TAU – if you've made it beyond the hand-wrung bargaining – the humans are inconsequential. For D'Alessandro, it is the machine that receives deliverance – an unsettling final message that arrives via one last science fiction trope.
