I adored Her because it tells a story of technology using the DNA of a love affair: longing, flirtation, disappointment, delirious lust, contentment, jealousy, heartbreak and confusion.

While parts of it are hilarious just as one would expect, the rest of the film takes on a surprisingly somber tone.

It sticks to its premise and goes deeper and expands there.

The quasi-science fiction story of the film feels entirely possible, as Phoenix stares around him at passersby, all entranced with an electronic device in their hands.

A provocatively-relevant film about how technology can make people dangerously introspective.

Under the Radar

Her explores fantastical ideas in ways we wish more films would: cerebrally, maturely, and non-reliant on action.

Her is a winning discussion of the idealization of women and the possessive nature of monogamous relationships in a somewhat warmer fashion than Vertigo or Ruby Sparks while admitting that its a problem for both genders.

While intimacy and exclusivity are the core ideas being explored, very little is taboo...'Eliza,' you've come a long way, baby.

"Her" is the finest writing and directorial endeavor of Spike Jonze's career.

This quirky, clever, thought-provoking film is an all-too-credible prediction of the way humanity is heading, but is also sharply observant of the way we interact with technology, and each other, today.

A lyrical, deeply felt movie with a surprisingly gentle spirit.

Phoenix's performance is imbued with such genuine heartsickness that Theodore's musings on why his marriage fell apart ring of piercing, real-life regret, not break-up bromides.

'Her' reduces love to a purely intellectual pursuit. The body is oddly irrelevant, the soul absent, reproduction abandoned. The result is dehumanizing. And yet fascinating.
Brad Keefe
Columbus Alive
April 21, 2014
An abundantly earnest look at the pain of loss and the rebirth of new love that somehow feels wholly original and familiar at the same time.

It's an incredible technological tale about love, human connection, and a question of a higher power.

The only other filmmaker who knows how to make sound, music and moment fit like a fitting of a perfectly suited slipper would be Sofia Coppola. Patience. Trust.

If Her is indeed a male fetish fantasy (as one journalist claimed), it's an odd one, presumably aimed at the same men who get a thrill from having their member sheathed in sandpaper.

As Her slips into an inevitable melancholy, it becomes less about trans-humanity and more about, well, humanity.

A beautiful, bewitching and deceptively warm experience.

For the first time with Her, the relationships Jonze brings to the big screen blossom into something bigger than the story and setting around them.
