I really admire Ōbayashi's dedication to embracing the artificiality of cinema, despite some of his choices feeling more incompetent than radical. While this is sometimes thuddingly obvious, it does feel like Ōbayashi's finding new ways to make it emotional. Also, this three hour film averages a woodblock noise to denote significance about every 10 seconds.
Her is very similar to Spike Jonze's Adaptation, where for a majority of the movie it is just ok, but it propels to extraordinary heights at the end. It's hard to put the films beauty into words so I won't say much. The movie is very visually rich as Jonze's movies always are. Every single actor is great in the movie. The score is also really great. This is one of my favorites of 2013 and one I can rewatch again any day of the week.
edit: this review is bad lol
