This movie blows me away. Every time. What a crazy concept for a movie. Charlie Kaufman's script is brilliant and Spike Jonze's direction does it justice. The cast is great too. Unique in all aspects- a true wonder.
First time I saw it, I was working at Kalamazoo 10 movie theater and they played it for the staff. It was a week before it was released and I didn't know much about it going in. Me and my pals had a blast! It was the best staff screening I attended while working at K10.
I was really looking forward to Her and it didn't disappoint in the least.
Spike Jonze's latest takes place in a sort-of retro-future where the technology feels both real and plausible. It's an incredibly cerebral movie that raises big questions about human nature, relationships, reliance on technology, monogamy, and more.
Joaquin Phoenix acts his ass off and Scarlett Johansson provides the voice of Samantha, the operating system he becomes involved with. She does a tremendous job and brings the character to life. Amy Adams and Rooney Mara do a fine job too.
