When the projection of a film creates a state of intense empathy between the audience and the screen, amplified by the presence in the room of the cast, a antidivo for excellence as Joaquin Phoenix or a “genius next door” as Spike Jonze, it is then difficult to discern the emotional involvement cooled by an analysis of the post-vision. We confess that it is a serious dilemma that the new feature film forces us to Rockville. But let’s order. ‘s start with the underline one thing: Jonze, from its visionary and rejection for pre-narrative registers, has always been criticized by his detractors for a kind of self-reference in the staging. Too exasperated his taste for a style utterly amazing. But, in fact, his poetry is much more “romantic” than it has been too superficially classified. What they have in common with John Cusack, “Being John Malkovich,” the Nicolas Cage of “Adaptation” and the little protagonist of ” Where the Wild Things Are “? The aspiration to being loved, the search for the ultimate happiness which consists in feeling important part of the lives of others. And so, already in his earlier works, Jonze had shown a willingness to build protagonists melancholic, frustrated most of the time and the anonymity of everyday life. This time, how to sculpt film on this assumption, the filmmaker has decided to devote the U.S. ‘ entire movie in this belief. To do so, has banned the testing or visual narrative, wrote a screenplay by classical plant in its linearity and given the makeup of the paradox inherent in the story the task of confirming his non-alignment to the dictates of the Hollywood industry. The irony, provocation, triggering the invention: this is nothing more than the set the film in the near future, where people have become unable to communicate, to entrust the task to professionals write each other letters and e- email and live accompanied by ultraintelligenti operating systems, capable of thoughts and self-consciousness of its own. Samantha, the gimmick bought from Theodore protagonist, is this: nothing more than a sentient machine, a result of the extreme technology can acquire the human being what it takes to build, piece by piece, a real soul.
