EP. 317 — Her

This week, Paul & Amy look at the other side of divorce with the 2013 Spike Jonze film, HER. The two break down the incredibly charming performance of Joaquin Phoenix, discuss the AI of it all, dig into all the messiness that is being in romantic relationships, and ask, “Was Scarlett Johansson acting as an avatar for the Jonze-Coppola divorce?”.


Next week, Paul and Amy take a look at the film Call Me By Your Name, in honor of the release of Luca Guadagnino’s new film, Challengers.
