At first I thought her looked good, then I thought...meh, I'm over it. But Marie loved it and ended up buying the blu-ray, so the cards were dealt and we watched it last night.
It was legit. Joaquin Phoenix did one hell of a job in this flick. It's practically a one-man play. He did a great job portraying the protagonist and he rocked a hell of a fine mustache.
The film is about a guy who falls in love with his computer's operating system. It's set in the not-too-distant future where wearable tech is ubiquitous and autonomous vehicles, immersive video games and artificial intelligence is mainstream. It's all rooted in reality and it appears to be a very accurate foreshadowing of what's to come in our lifetime. Given that, I don't think falling in love with his OS is as silly as it may first sound. Consider for a moment that his OS is voiced by Scarlett Johansson. Wouldn't you have phone sex with your OS if it sounded like ScarJo? Yeah. Exactly.
The costume is excellent and so is the cinematography. The score is done by Arcade Fire. It's a very well-rounded flick. I really don't have any bones to pick with it at all. The costuming also goes to show that although high-waisted pants look awful on women, clearly men of the future can pull them off just fine.
You should watch this movie. It's pretty light-hearted, well-acted, and original.
