Out of Control: The Rise of A.I.

Her (2013) – 10 year anniversary

This beautiful and thoughtful meditation on relationships by visionary director Spike Jonze is certain to touch your heartstrings, whilst delivering a powerful message on our dependencies on digital technologies. Joaquin Phoenix is amazing as always as a social outcast who finds a bit too much comfort in his personal A.I. Samantha. If you have tried the (paid) ChatGPT4 you know how eerily close that bot already is to human companionship and it’s easy to envision the reality in Her becoming true in the coming year(s). The end of this film is just one of many scenarios that can play out when the A.I.’s start making their own decisions instead of just fulfilling our desires (for others: see for example Westworld, Colossus: The Forbin Project, or The Matrix). English language with Dutch subtitles.
