WARNING : Includes Spoiler 🙂
Her is one of the top 250 imdb films for not hearing nothing about it yet. But the reason of writing now is its being the most weird and also interesting movie I’ve ever watched. It’s mainly about the love between a human and a personalized operating system. The main character(Joaquin Phoenix) buys an personalized operating system, the operating system has a voice, he chooses woman voice. Then he and also the operating system fall in love.
When telling the story like this, it means nothing. But beside this, the movie shows us how lonely we are and need attention.
We change, want to stay alone, do not want to care with nobody except us and sometimes make people who close to use out of all happened. It is the easiest way being alone. We do not have to deal with anthing / anybody. If we are a friendly type, we will need new friends, or else being isolated.
But a voice improved herself/himself with our needs, is like a voice in our head. It is the friend in our loneliness, not have real problems, always do something to make us happy, it just like the perfect partner, everything we need. We do not need doing anything for it, it is not real. I can hear your thought saying how asocial and miserable this is. I think about it for all the time movie playing. But if everyone thinks that it is normal, what happens? All the people start to live in their miserable, virtual lifes.
If today, this technology would be available, everything would be just like on the movie. Everyone would have chosen the artificial one. But in the movie the question “is this normal?” would always been. The perfect answer to this i think was the Amy Adams’ quote : ” You know what, I can over think everything and find a million ways to doubt myself. And since Charles left I’ve been really thinking about that part of myself and, I’ve just come to realize that, we’re only here briefly. And while I’m here, I wanna allow myself joy. So fuck it”.
