Default Her

Saw the trailer, my heart is breaking already. It's a story of "A lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with his newly-purchased operating system that's designed to meet his every need."

Starring Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams, they were amazing in the also amazing The Master. Check out the trailer and feel the lump in your throat:

This could have interesting things to say about our modern relationship with technology.

Isn't there a thread for this already?

As far as the trailer goes: Cinematography looks great, but otherwise uninteresting.

Shades of "Lars and the Real Girl"/"Simone"/"Bicentennial Man"

Wow... I wonder if the conclusion will be for or against technology. Or maybe it'll leave it open

If this is like Where the Wild Things are, the movie will take a very beautiful thing and make it into something extremely depressing

My suspicions were right. Very boring movie. Beautiful soundtrack though by Arcade Fire. I give this movie a 2.5/5.

I agree; it was a potentially brilliant concept, but didn't really make it on execution.

It's one of those feature films with a story that could have been told in a 30 minute short, that's my problem with it.

Agree. Thought this movie could have been 80 minutes long. I loved the concept as well which is the only reason I gave it 2.5/5. The performance from Phoenix I thought was good. ScarJo was just average as usual. Not that she was really given anything to do. No problems out of her performance just saying it was nothing special, nor was it supposed to be. Adams I thought was pretty bad. Some scenes she was average to ok, then they're were a few where she just felt overacting and like I should say it's a good performance, just because she dressed down. Still nothing for her to do. Wilde in her 5 minutes was pretty good. The standout for this film was the soundtrack, which I heard before I watched the movie and you barely even hear it because of too much silence and close ups of Phoenix. Skip this movie. Listen to the soundtrack instead.

Here's a couple of actual creative changes that would have made the film better, IMO:

- The world Theo lives in is a bit too "nice," especially when he is outside. I'm not saying it should be a flaming dystopia, but it lacked the kind of moody oppressiveness that made Being John Mahlkovich so relatable despite being so fanciful. Maybe a gray or blue wash over scenes when Theo is outdoors in the world, I don't know.

- The slow, growing acceptance of the OS' among the general populace should have been played up more, and more often. Similarly, the sense of loss at the end could have been a lot more impactful.

Also:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
- The surrogate scene felt like a copout. A more daring director (I'm thinking like Cronenberg) would have consummated that relationship, maybe even several times, and drawn it out over one or more acts of the movie, until is disintegrated into the dysfunction that was only hinted at. This could have been the tipping point this movie needed. Instead, it served only to be a barely relevant distraction.

I loved Being John Malhkovich, and I know what Spike is capable of, but Her just really felt incomplete.
