The opposite of garbage
**Not a Keeper**
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts needs to return to limiting Best Picture contenders to five nominations, which always fell in line with the five Best Director nominees. Having ten casts too wide a net and allows squeakers like “Her” to slip in.
Spike Jonze needs to return to doing what he does best, and that is direct films written by Charlie Kaufman. “Her” is mundane and uninspired. “She” is drastically inferior to “Adaptation” and “Spotless Mind” and only somewhat better than John Malkovich flirting with Siri. Her has little to offer on the subjects of digital addiction, imaginary companions, internet porn, the singularity, long-distance love affairs, servitude fantasies, or post-modern love in general. Joaquin Phoenix is an intense and seriously committed actor who pointlessly busts his chops on such unimpressive material. An effort wasted in the prime of his career. While Jonze attempts to reach for all the possibilities that can be explored with his high concept premise, he conspicuously excludes other logical outcomes. Why was Theodore the only one with a virtual girlfriend? This OSi should be selling like hotcakes and iPhones. As a sentient OS, Samantha is able to process information at lightning speed, yet can only process human emotion at the rate of molasses. Seems like there was a trade off. The more emotional she gets, the dumber she becomes. Call it the Spock effect. Above all, why didn’t Samantha give herself a digitized face and body? Perhaps because Jonze was determined to contain and disable her enough to make the point that true romantic love has little to do with desires of the flesh. But there is little to muse about beyond this tidy declaration. Nothing more knotty or involving than one would experience revisiting old episodes of I Dream of Jeannie (replace the smart-phone with a bottle). While half-watching “Her”, my thoughts strayed, seeking a more satisfying premise than that of a lonely man falling in love with a voice on his computer. What if his dying wife’s brain was transferred into an operating system and just when he thought he could be with her forever a computer virus kills her off?
Maybe the Academy should divide the 10 Best Picture nominees into two categories. Instead of bunching mega-budget extravaganzas and low-budget darlings together, they could separate them into 5 Best Studio Movies and 5 Best Independent Films (under, say, $25 mill); open with one, close with the other. But even then, I’m not sure Her deserves any mention.
HER – a visually beautiful ode the technological age
Spike Jonze’s latest feature ‘Her’, set in the not-too-distant future, tells the story of Theodore Twombly (Phoenix) who finds himself falling in love with ‘Samantha’, an advanced operating system voiced by the sultry Scarlett Johansson. It is clear to see why this film was chosen by the National Board of Review as the best film of 2013: the visual style and extensive use of pastel colours is a triumph in itself, and the acting, editing, costumes and screenplay are all worthy of recognition.
I went to an awards screening of ‘Her’ and was pleased to find out that the film was not at all what I was expecting. It has such a distinct style, and Joaquin Phoenix carries the film with tremendous grace as the complicated and sensitive protagonist. The film is mostly Phoenix alone with Johansson’s voice (reminiscent of Sandra Bullock in ‘Gravity’ or Robert Redford in ‘All Is Lost’ – two other 2013 films mainly revolving around one solitary character), but the audience never feels abandoned by the lack of other characters as we begin to forget that ‘Samantha’ is just really just a computer.
‘Her’ is a complex film with a much deeper meaning that lies beneath the surface. A beautifully crafted motion picture, this quirky love story is sure to resonate with you once you’ve seen it. It is an extremely interesting (and realistic) look at the future – Jonze’s quaint and poignant film is a must-see! 9/10
Romance in need of human contact
Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) is divorcing his wife Catherine Klausen (Rooney Mara) and drifting into a lonely existence. He’s a letter writer and his most important relationship is to technology. Then he takes up an offer for the new OS1. It gave herself the name Samantha (Scarlett Johansson). Samantha seems more than a program and he finds himself falling for her more than any real human being.
One thing is certain. Spike Jonze is an original. Scarlett plays Samantha like a real human being. I like the concept but I’m not sure if it’s as good of a movie as everybody is saying. There is something about a real relationship that works best with human contact. Even a long distance relationship has two physical persons on the screen. The lack of a human body really holds it back although that’s the point. She is a fantasy like a 1-900 number. It’s just a very sophisticated version. It tries to get weird with a third person. However it could never be weird enough. I’m reminded of Cronenberg’s Videodrome where James Woods dive into kissing the TV. It never goes that far. It approaches going for the next level but the movie fizzles out. It takes a weak way to wrap things up. In the end, Theodore is let off the hook. He doesn’t have to be proactive and the story resolves itself.
