Heard so many good things about this film. Glad to say I wasn’t disappointed when I finally got to watch it. Easily one of the more unique films to get a wide release and certainly deserved its nomination for Best Original Screenplay. Maybe because I have been in the technology industry for close to 20 years now, but something about this film is very intriguing. With our smartphones getting smarter with the likes of Siri and Cortana, how far off is a concept about an Operating System and that can understand and interpret human speech and actually learn about the person using them. Sure, I think reality is a long way off but with advancements in technology it is a concept that isn’t too hard to believe. Will our culture and society ever get to a point where having a relationship with a “simulated” person is commonplace or even acceptable? Some pretty deep philosophical questions that I didn’t fully expect for a film like this. Very enjoyable and Joaquin Phoenix is still a pretty amazing actor.
