Starring Joaquin Phoenix as a man who falls in love with his computer operating system… It raises the question: Do we even need our bodies? Or is it all in our brains? The relationship is real enough to make us ask what a relationship is and whether the coming so-called singularity — when artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence while humans’ minds will be broadened by machines — will change the way we relate (or don’t) to one another.
Agreed. Happy to see the film getting some love from both NY Mag and the NYT today, even if it has been snubbed by most of the awards circuit.
