By Her, a film of insurmountable depth, the work of Spike Jonze has reached perfection. It neither contains the complexity of Adaptation or Being John Malkovich, nor the simplicity of Where the Wild Things Are. It's about a very palpable subject (the destruction of human relations due to the advent of computers), and by becoming a paradoxically bitter celebration of life, forces a certain appreciation for the world around us. Powerhouse performance by Phoenix aside, who cares about Oscar eligibility? In a fair world, solely Johannson's voice should win, not an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, but Best Leading Actress.
