The demand to be a knowable, self-aware, and authentic self thwarts many a friendship, love affair, and intimate conversation, and yet we continue to turn to the self-help aisle or Oprah to learn to be better at expressing and knowing ourselves. When that fails, we lament that we are misunderstood, unheard, and unmet by the other. This disappointment suggests that there is a transparent, authentic, and real self that needs recognition and mirroring. But this self is, I believe, a product of the neoliberal economization of the self, in which human capital becomes another site of investment and entrepreneurial ventures. To begin to think through what depersonalized intimacy looks like, we can turn to representations of couplings between organism and machine, because they offer a model that is not invested in who or what self and other are, ontologically. If one of the selves is automated, then friendship, love, and communication may function very differently from the normative paradigms of relationships and open up new possibilities for encounter and intimacy.

Goeztman may or may not have been alluding to the recent conversation the L. Times blog had with Warner Bros. This could be about a separate conversation Goetzman had with Horn that pointed to some creation friction. He wanted big animatronic Wild Things in the jungle, which look great. As you go deeper in the jungle and weather sets in… We misjudged that, production-wise. Either way, the news that Jonze has final cut is pretty important to the creative conclusion of the film, but it sounds like he and Playtone, and not just big bad Warner Bros, are aware that the film has its problems and some retooling needs to be done.
Looks like Goetzman is making the rounds and AICN caught up with him too along with Anne Thompson who will surely have her own report later today. The producer echoed the same sentiments to AICN that he told CHUD, plus quashed the rumor that the main boy in the film Max Records delivered a bad performance and reiterated that Jonze has final cut and is here to stay. Warner Brothers has no intention of bringing down the hammer on anyone.
Vincent Gallo Interview: Spike Jonze, Sofia Coppola, Wes Anderson “Suck”.
I could not reduce it to a sentence. On Saturday evening at the WGA Awards, the “Her” writer-director claimed the prize for original screenplay, and in doing so beat out the same nominees he will contend with at this year’s Academy Awards. Jonze’s sci-fi romantic dramedy follows a lonely writer Joaquin Phoenix who falls in love with the disembodied voice of his computer operating system voiced by Scarlett Johansson.
One of the biggest questions, at least from a filmmaking standpoint: How did Jonze and his team arrive at the future we see on the screen?
Spike Jones kept up a frenetic pace in the late s as a freelance studio musician for motion pictures, records, and radio shows. The busy young drummer commuted to Hollywood studios in a station wagon that was a veritable junkyard on wheels. But he had little opportunity to employ cowbells, sirens, and automobile horns in his work at the time.
This page lists fan theories about the film Her. Spike Jonze was married to fellow director Sofia Coppola. They met in and were married from to At the time, Spike was 34 and Karen was Touring and doing lots of promotion. Since Karen is constantly touring and doing promotion, most of their relationship occurs over the phone. And as Karen, who was in her mid s, met tons of interesting people and grew, she naturally changed over time.
Viceland Promotes Derek Freda and Guy Slattery to Network Co-Presidents
By Published November 24, At Interview magazine, we occasionally stage interviews in front of a live audience. We would like to thank director Spike Jonze and musician Thurston Moore for participating, as well as the audience members who showed up to partake. I challenge you to a question-off. I know how good you are at this. What do you got? Did you ever get into trouble as a teen?
I was recently reminded of that formulation while putting together an outline for two podcasts discussing the Spike Jonze movie Her. Like Don Juan DeMarco, Her is a film that is deeply concerned with life’s biggest questions, posed via a story that, at first glance, we wouldn’t expect to take us there.
Source Her is a American romantic science-fiction drama film written, directed, and produced by Spike Jonze. It marks Jonze’s solo screenwriting debut. The film follows Theodore Twombly Joaquin Phoenix , a man who develops a relationship with Samantha Scarlett Johansson , an intelligent computer operating system [lower-alpha 1] personified through a female voice.
Jonze conceived the idea in the early s after reading an article about a website that allowed for instant messaging with an artificial intelligence program. After making I’m Here , a short film sharing similar themes, Jonze returned to the idea. He wrote the first draft of the script in five months. Principal photography took place in Los Angeles and Shanghai in mid The role of Samantha was recast in post-production, with Samantha Morton being replaced with Johansson.
Additional scenes were filmed in August following the casting change. Pictures initially provided a limited release for Her at six theaters on December It was later given a wide release at over 1, theaters in the United States and Canada on January 10, The film received numerous awards and nominations, primarily for Jonze’s screenplay. Contents [ show ] Plot In futuristic Los Angeles , Theodore Twombly is a hardworking but lonely, introverted, depressed man who works for a business that has professional writers compose letters for people who are unable to write letters of a personal nature themselves.

Deconstructing Spike Jonze’s “Her”
The concept is that you can’t copyright a general idea or concept, only the specific expression an author develops. For instance, you might have the idea to write a story about a group of four friends traveling on a journey together, bonding and accomplishing tasks. They’re similar in only the most general ways, but both can coexist without the need of lawyers and suits.
Unfortunately, we’ve seen example after example of this dichotomy being actively ignored in the more noble interest in making tons of money off of another person’s expression. Some folks seem to think that they can own an idea. Well, let’s make room on that list of folks for Sachin Gadh and Jonathan Sender, who are suing Spike Jonze for his film Her , which they say he stole from them.

Share on Facebook Before movies learned how to talk, they learned how to kiss. First they lean, then they nuzzle. Then Rice adjusts the ends of his enormous mustache. Then they exchance a series of chaste pecks. The films that follow are comedies and dramas, and feature relationships that end happily and tragically. We love something so much we drive it into the ground.
Then we hate it … until it goes away for a while and we realize why we loved it in the first place. It made Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet two of the biggest movie stars in the world, and it married genuine emotions and rich characters to some of the most spectacular special effects in Hollywood history. The Nora Ephron movie knowingly rips from another classic tearjerker, An Affair to Remember, as a forlorn Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in all her wispy bangs greatness find love in a hopeless place.
Could it get any sappier?
