Is there anything else you want to make sure people notice or think about regarding Upgrade?
Whannell: I feel like a lot of the reviews have misconstrued it as a revenge movie. Movies are an interesting beast, because you work on them, you make them, and then you release them. There's a quote about how you never really finish your movie, you abandon it. So it goes out into the world like a little dove that you've let out of its cage, and the world decides what the movie is. Sometimes that viewpoint lines up with yours, and other times, it doesn't. It's a really interesting and enlightening process: "Ah, I didn't think I'd made that movie, but clearly, I have!" I see a lot of reviews talking about Upgrade as a revenge movie, and that's really surprising, because I didn't set out to make a revenge movie. I didn't think I'd made a revenge movie at all. The revenge movie aspect of it is so small. It's just the device of his wife dying, and I wanted to sprinkle that in, but I really wanted to wrap the movie in a completely different skeleton than a revenge movie, which is, you find out it's not about him seeking revenge for his wife. The movie is not about that at all. It's always been about two people fighting for control of the same body. Someone fighting for control of their own body with a computer. Yes, it may be omniscient at times, to get these people, but that's not what the movie is about. But I keep seeing that phrase -- "a sci-fi revenge thriller!" I'm not bemoaning it, because one of the great and wonderful things about making a movie is that it's open to interpretation. You can't really tell anybody that they're wrong. If a Bruce Springsteen fan goes, "I love this song! I love how the meaning is against corporate interests!", I think it would be wrong of Bruce Springsteen to say, "That's not what the song is about at all." So I'm not going to say people are wrong to call it a revenge movie, but it's certainly not what I intended.
