Sometimes you just have to treat yourself to a movie in the middle of the weekday for no other reason than that you want to and you think you deserve it.
I took myself to the movies last week to see Her. A beautiful film directed by Spike Jonze about a man who falls in love with his operating system.
I love how Spike Jonze takes these really crazy scenarios and portrays them in a way that seems so normal. It almost makes you start to wonder if you could fall in love with an operating system because at the end of the day it’s not about the social constructs of love that society has projected into the world, but rather just the emotions that you alone experience when you throw your ideas out into the darkness and listen for a voice that you hope is more than your echo. And if that voice comes from your phone then maybe that wouldn’t matter to you so much if it was a voice that deeply understood you and made you feel full and alive and inspired and young.
I’m glad that I have real people in my life to make me feel that way. But I still think everyone should watch this movie
