Jonze's film is a quietly unsettling and impressive accomplishment, one that makes us believe its protagonists are in love despite the fact they can never be together.

Her is among the more pleasurable, immediately satisfying, and appreciably ambivalent of techno-love tales.

One half of the relationship at the center of 'Her' may lack a physical form, but it is nonetheless a film about the universality of romance: its longing, its intensity, and its transformative power - for the best, and the worst.

Her is set in the future, but its genius is the fact that it's a love story of our times.

Spike Jonze has journeyed into a genuinely rare genre here - the sci-fi drama - and emerged as victorious as ever.

This is an astoundingly written, directed and acted film that subtly infuses all its emotional and philosophical layers effortlessly and indiscreetly.

This intriguing romance takes a clever and sophisticated look at love in the modern world.

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.

Critic's Notebook

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

August 18, 2014
Her explores fantastical ideas in ways we wish more films would: cerebrally, maturely, and non-reliant on action.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
August 11, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.0/10

While intimacy and exclusivity are the core ideas being explored, very little is taboo...'Eliza,' you've come a long way, baby.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4.0

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

June 29, 2014
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.
Rebecca Cusey

'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.
