The other night I finally got to see Spike Jonze‘s new film Her, you know, the one that got a couple of Oscar nominations? The more I think about the film, the more I love it. It might as well be my new favorite film of 2013. I can’t wait to re-watch it. Expect a review soon and an essay even sooner. I hope you guys like(d) the film as well, because I’ll be posting quite a bit about it. I’m starting with this 15 minute mini-documentary that surfaced on the web yesterday called Her: Love in the Modern Age. Continue reading
You have no idea how excited I am about this one! Spike Jonze is up there with Sofia Coppola as one of my favorite directors. I am at the Locarno Film Festival right now and I’ve just seen the first trailer and poster for HER, which is most likely going to end up on my top ten of the year.
The trailer starts with Avril 14th a piece of music used in Marie Antoinette (and you might have noticed Sofia “borrowed” Crown on the Ground for her newest film The Bling Ring). This film, HER (sorry I just have to use caps) looks phenomenal. It seems like a natural progression after Jonze’s 2010 short I’m Here, which is also about technology.
The film comes out November 20, 2013 and it’s definitely one of my most anticipated. I don’t want to add anything else, except that the minute the trailer began I was entranced and transported into Spike’s world, everything around me disappeared. Incredible filmmaking. Great cast of incredibly talented (and good-looking actors). Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Wilde: I am stunned. See for yourself!
