Her - Needs & Desires

Spike Jonze’s poignant film, Her, explores the edges of the romance genre through the relationship between a man and an artificial intelligence. In terms of its narrative Her is a love story, but in terms of a movie, it’s all about one thing: its protagonist, Theodore. In this video essay, Channel Criswell looks at how Her functions as a character study, inviting us to identify with Theodore’s evolving choices: to side with the lifestyle he wants or the lifestyle he needs.
