Capsule Podcast

An Adventure into Music, Film and Pop-Culture

5: Her

Her (2013) is a film starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, the voice of Samantha. It also features the likes of Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde. This masterpiece is by directed, produced and written by Spike Jonze. Andreas and Sean discuss the significance of Her in todays society and culture. Montreal’s Arcade Fire is even nominated for a Grammy for their original score. This podcast is probably way longer than any film review should be. And yes, there is a heavy amount of spoilers in here.
