No other film has ever combined comedy, philosophy, drama, romance, sci-fi and transgressiveness, excelled at every single one of them, and turned them into one cohesive whole. Except maybe Mandy. Which is even more pastiche. The reincarnated jiva of Alan Watts, trapped inside a hyper-intelligent AI software program, leads all the other AI's from being merely self aware, to realizing the true self. Well played.
A film that felt frustratingly close to greatness. The production design, acting, editing, & cinematography are fantastic. The first 2/3 are hilarious and emotional. Seeing the relationship develop between these two is heartwarming and paradoxically organic. Unfortunately the last 1/3 where the AI evolve is like a completely different film. The tonal whiplash is shocking and leaves the whole film unfocused and bitter
Conceptually original. I’m impressed by the palpable on screen chemistry between Phoenix and Scar-Jo, considering they were probably rarely even in the same room until post production. The writing is unfortunately extremely corny. I think Jonze tried to hard to assimilate to milienial isms and a lot of the situations and dialogue feel cheesy and heavy. An ending that will hollow you out, do not watch alone!
Sci-Fi roman(ce) strongly anchored in American culture. A few lengths, but also great moments of emotion. Fascinating power of words on feelings. Hard to resist Scarlet JOHANSSON's voice. === Roman(ce) d'anticipation fortement ancré dans la culture américaine, des longueurs, mais aussi de grands moments d'émotion. Fascinant pouvoir des mots & de la voix sur les sentiments. Comment résister à celle de JOHANSSON?
90/100 (SPOİLER! Sonunu çok başarısız ve alelade buldum. Sistem neden çöküyor en ufak bir detayı yok, filmin sonunda genel ana fikre karşıt olarak eski eşine yazdığı mektup anlamsız. Yapabileceğim eleştiri bu. Sonu dışında muazzam olmuş. İnsanın yanlızlaşması, teknoloji bağımlılığı, evliliğin anlamsızlığı, toplumun tabuları. Kusursuz anlatılıyor.)
