dEF’Rating: Her

Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) develops feelings for a computer program in Her. image source:

HER is Slow, silent and grindingly haunting. It’s a story that warns us on over reliance on computer programs to the verge where we think about them as partners …hysterically as lovers, we might punctuate. Do not engage intimately with software programs for they too, like full blooded live humans, need maintenance; seem to be the warning that this film carry. Give yourself a break before you sit through this film again. It’s not bad, in fact it is great. Besides the stellar cast it is hedged upright for attention by the novelty of the idea it harbors, that necessarily makes it an original venture plot wise that is, as well as an interesting production and costumes designs. We give it 3 dEFPoints out of Five: ♦♦♦
