"Falling in love is a crazy thing to do. It’s like a socially acceptable form of insanity." -Amy, ‘Her’
I was intrigued by the premise of this film, intrigued enough to agree to create a alternative poster for Shortlist.com when this type of movie isn’t my usual fare. I wanted to portray a human quality, analog with texture, since the film is so clean and technological. Theodore enjoys a moment with his love Samantha, pictured here as a ghostly figure of binary code and circuits.
‘Her' explores a slightly uncomfortable subject, but one that can hold deeper understanding, especially for those of us who have felt deep affection for someone (or something) unconventional.
