So many things running through my head right now after seeing “Her.”
Excellent and fascinating and I don’t even know what to think. my senses are so discombobulated. I felt the connection, deeply. His pain. The viscerality of their virtual relationship.
I was deeply affected by the writing: among of the best written movies I’ve ever seen. At least three specifically profound passages stuck out…(but I dared not pull out my phone to write them down…)
And the score! The music was sumptuous and fresh and blissfully concordant with the script; that rarely happens. Downloading it NOW.
The whole thing: beautifully acted. If Phoenix was the film’s heart, Johansson was it’s soul.
But someone explain those damn weird pants.
Overall, “Her” was completely original Thought-provoking. Honest. Introspective. It took me to places I hadn’t conceived of–yet reminded me of the continuity of the human experience and how, no matter what (or when), we all desire connection above all. And always will.
** Samantha? **
One more thing: This vision of the future kinda makes the fuss over marriage equality in the twenty-tens seem downright provencial.
