Went to see Her and really loved loved loved it. So many great things about this film, jotting off just a few quick notes so I won't forget:
the colors. I loved all the reds and arnges.
the cityscapes, especially the night views from Theodore's apartment (and again, the colors, all those night blues), and the plazas and pedestrian walkways
the interiors, like Theodore's workplace and his apartment
Samantha's breathy husky voice
the scene on the beach, with its oversaturated bright light and its focus on Theodore looking almost like that tilt-shift technique
the fashion, especially the men's fashion (which you can buy). I hardly noticed the women's at all (only the way Amy dressed in her first appearance, with high-water pants)
the design of the tech gadgets. Loved that cigarette box look of the ... what? personal computer?, its port-hole looking camera, and the warm red glow of an incoming call at night. The earpiece looked kind of ... antiquated to me.
the music was just perfect
the unexplained background details to marvel at, like the "Handwritten Letters" company. What an intriguing concept! Who are the people who have their letters written for them? Theodore mentions casually that he's been writing the letters for both people in a relationship - who are they? Why do they choose to conduct their relationship this way? What does it say about their relationship, that it includes the letter writer?
the Mom video game that Amy is working on, and the treasure hunt on a faraway planet video game that Theodore plays in his living room at night. Amazing detail!
and of course the questions to ask, and the fact that I keep thinking about it. What is a relationship? "Is it not a real relationship?" if one partner is disembodied? How do we deal with loneliness? How do we connect? How do we share our lives?
