Simply a masterful work of cinema.
It's one of those rare films that continually evolves and improves throughout its run time. It's at times hilarious, fun, insightful, and ultimately heartbreaking.
I'd say it's equal part devastating character study into a grieving human struggling to cope, and complex meditation into what it means to be human, and the inevitable, inherent disconnect between the human and electronic worlds.
I'm honestly having trouble finding words for this review, as there is simply so much to think about and analyze from a film standpoint. I will say without question the cinema world needs more minds like Spike Jonze and actors like Joaquin Phoenix.
I give this rating and make this proclamation maybe every 2-3 years, and I must say it always feels damn good. Without further adieu:
