Yeah, that's where I first saw it, too. The first thing it reminded me of, though, was the life-like insect robots Fast, Cheap and Out of Control.

Me too!

I just showed Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control to a group of Christian writers in Texas a couple of weeks ago. It sparked some interesting discussions. I had a good chat about it with John Wilson (Books and Culture), his wife Wendy, and Eugene Peterson over lunch. John had seen it once before, on your recommendation.

P.S.  I COULD BE WRONG.

Yeah, the first article I ever wrote for B&C was about that film. In fact, it was because of the B&C connection that I got to interview Errol Morris about that film -- though I only used one or two tiny quotes in my B&C story. (Man, that was ten years ago. Ten years, and I STILL haven't heard John Wilson's voice. It's been nothing but e-mails all the way.)
