Her ★★★★★

Wow.

A double-punch right in the feels. JP gives an AMAZING performance. ScarJo as well, especially considering how she recorded it (no spoilers!). Sets and costume were really interesting. A lot of highwaisted wool... pastel button downs... moustaches... every male is like your dad from the 50s. The natural grains of the digital devices... the tree elevator... I dunno if I want to live in this world, but I love looking at it.

As to the story, well, this is a really challenging piece of art. There are some very uncomfortable scenes... some were expected, and maybe that is why it took so long for me to watch this film. The unexpected ones were very thought-provoking. I didn't realize that this would be such a hard sci-fi film... and I loved that.

Spike Jonze really knows how to tug on your heart strings. The letters are pretty amazing... like ScarJo's lines... so touching...

… right in the feels...

…wow...
