    ★★★★½

    An emotionally painful, yet occasionally joyful film that provides two naturalistic-feeling sides of human nature.

    This is a film I needed in my life again, and what better way to assure my lonliness than to rewatch 'Her' on Valentine's Day.

    There was something much more bittersweet, quietly depressing, and touching about Her this time around, something really out of touch and upsetting.

    It made me realize the effect…
