Defining a “favorite” or “best” film of the year is tricky, but what I can say is that Spike Jonze’s Her resonated with me the most. As a minimalist, and avid computer user, I was inspired by how Her reconciles the two. Here, I observe some good news about the future, according to the film:
Clothes look elegant, yet functional, durable, and comfortable.
As technology improves, people are actually encouraged to spend more time in nature.
The future looks cleaner…
and more colorful.
Computers give meaning to what we already have. Human relationships become even more valuable. We appreciate our complex feelings and physical bodies.
