Rewatched this with my mom! I love the way this movie envisions the future and the nuanced unjudgemental way it looks at relationships... but I never enjoy joaquin phoenix much in anything because he really creeps me out and so did the manic pixie dream computer aspects of the story
Wie ein kleines Wunder wirkt Spike Jonze neues Werk! Hier geht es um die ewige Liebe zu einer Seele, die nicht einmal sichtbar ist! So aufrichtig und unaffektiert wird das vorgespielt, dass es auf Anhieb entwaffnend ist... die ganze Review sowie die kuriosesten Liebesfilme gibts auf der Seite unserer Videothek cinegeek.de
If machine's became self aware then this is more of a realistic approach than Terminator. The feeling of having everything within our reach and yet still feeling confused on what we want and lonely are shown with the cinematography and excellent camera shots. The writing actually has these people having realistic conversations that we can relate to. And not forgetting the outstanding music score by Arcade Fire. ^_^
A simple but incredibly troubling thought experiment that takes us directly to the very essence of what(ever) constitutes love, as well as to the basement of our souls. What makes us so special and worth beloved? The director honours the idea without any fiddle-faddle but genuinely good acting and pictures.
Spike Jonze inspired again, painfully spot on with his tale of impossible love in a world where human communication is made more and more challenging as we have grown too dependent on robots and computers. Joaquin Phoenix is astounding, as usual, in a new variation of the beautiful loser. Beautiful also is the score by the Arctic Monkeys.
