    Spike Jonze Talks About Working With Scarlett Johansson On 'Her,' Arcade Fire & Intellect Vs. Intuition

    While you’ve probably heard it described in simple ways, Spike Jonze’s “Her” is much, much more than the iPhone movie about falling love with Siri. And it’s hardly a film about technology and our future – though that obviously is an element. In many ways, "Her" is a traditional love story and relati...

    Review: Spike Jonze's Funny & Insightful 'Her' Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams & More

    Is social media anti-social? Has the information age divided us as much as it has been meant to unite?
