Film Review: her (Joaquin Phoenix) Thought provoking film, our love for a successor species – artificial intelligence

her, with Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams & Scarlett Johansson.  Director, Spike Jonze.  While not being one of Phoenix greatest admirers, to say the least, his performance in this haunting & empathy-generating film was most unreal.  Pleasing.

Phoenix was indeed brilliant as someone enmeshed in melancholy, in the not too far off future.  Over-rated, usually, the screenplay & subtle ambiance of the film carried him successfully.  A natural painfulness within him, was well cast by the producers to create a work of art.

While only portraying the disembodied voice of an operating system, Johansson truly distinguishes her self in a very human role.  Fraught with angst & discovery.  Second support adeptly coming from Adams.

I recommend the film.  Its value to me was enormous & anything that many of us can relate to, defining something we’ve ignored previously as just background noise, has meaning as a signpost.
