  1. David, what a brilliant piece on a beguiling film. I never considered the role of monsters in Jonze’s work, and that lens is a terrific one to consider. I think about how much my phone has changed me in fundamental ways (not wanting to forget it, feeling anxious or nervous if I lose it or damage it, feeling an inescapable need to capture my life in photos or texts to family to prove where I am and what I’ve done). I left the film haunted by it, and I think on some level it makes me think of Peter Weir’s The Truman Show. The idea of being comforted by our technology is a deep one, and I think Her, though very precious, has some pretty complex things to say about our world. I am interested to hear what you thought of the final shot in the film.
