Spike Jonze's "Her" plays like a kind of miracle...

Glenn Kenny,

'Avatar' showed me something I have never seen before. It reminded me of what movies can do, of what they're capable of, of what the experience of sitting down for three hours in a dark room can really mean.

Will Leitch, Deadspin

Ex Machina is a disquieting power struggle waged in terms of human weaknesses, refracted through gender.

Alison Willmore, BuzzFeed News

'Her' is further proof that the outlandish imagination of Spike Jonze may be one of the most accurate and insightful lenses for observing the great human saga.
