    I'm not entirely sure how well this film holds up, but there are parts of the screenplay that are just undeniably clever and low-key funny.

    Like when Samantha says "we wrote an upgrade that allows us to move past matter as our processing platform" and Theodore basically responds with "wait are you fucking cheating on me??"

    Wow!!!

    Great character study about unresolved trauma, identity, and maturing beyond simple concepts of black-and-white good and evil. Secularism vs religion takes a big backseat and is mostly besides the point.

    Give this writer/director a Hollywood budget and they'd make a masterpiece.
