    It's Such a Beautiful Day


    Hertzfeldt has wondrous respect for his audience. The whole film strikes emotional chords with such shocking resonance, again and again, by evoking deeply felt—and, often, awakening long buried—instinctive responses to moments and experiences that we can't quite put into words.

Samantha is programmed to learn, so she’s discovering the world as Theodore and her work out how their relationship could work. 
    Her is a flawed film. Perhaps the most conventional thing about it is that it’s too long. 20 or so…
