Stylish Films: Her


Spike Jonze's "Her" is definitely one of the best films I've seen in quite a while. I left the theater with so many thoughts and questions, and I still can't even begin to explain why it was such a fantastic film. I am still so speechless. Taking place in the near future, the settings seen in this film does portray the future well, but I was a little intrigued by the main character Theodore's style and how that can be a correct representation of the future of fashion. While yes, a fictional film, it still interests me as to why futuristic fashion in Spike Jonze's eyes consists of simplistic oxford shirts and extremely high-waisted trousers.  
While confused on the idea of this futuristic fashion, I still completely loved it. Maybe the high-waisted pants are a little strange, but for some reason they really worked for Joaquin Phoenix's character Theodore. Not really sure why. But besides the awesome awkward trousers, his choice of vibrant coral colored oxfords shirts throughout the film really stood out and caught my eye in a good way. The overall simplistic styles of the film was a good addition to the organized and clean lifestyle that it seems like took place in Theodore's life. 
Everything about this film was so creative and unique, and the story and message is breathtaking. It may seem a little strange to some, but it is a film to really keep an open mind about when seeing, because the message is just amazing. If you haven't seen it already, please do!
