Spike Jonze dehumanizes women and love in Her

Until Her, Spike Jonze was a favorite of the American Eccentrics. His brazen artiness was usually redeemed by youthful goofiness and the goofiness had a certain conceptual finesse--best demonstrated in his 2000 Weapon of Choice music video for Fatboy Slim where Christopher Walken's song-and-dance pantomime jeteed into the surreal levitation of Brian DePalma's The Fury, Ludacris's 2004 Get Back music video or the 2010 short film I'm Here where the romance of robots uncannily expressed palpable human longings.
