What dreams may come
23 January 2011 | by vogonifySee all my reviews

A shy, young man goes through his mundane life without companionship. Until he learns to dream.

Spike Jonze has made some bizarre-looking movies to say normal-sounding things. I'm Here is one such with a basic premise so basic, you wonder if the facade he uses is just a gimmick for drawing an audience. But his imagery takes you beyond petty suspicions and introduces some remarkable, relate-able characters. In fact, it almost makes you feel that that was the only way to make the film. It is a truly commendable quality of this short.

This is a wonderful effort and takes just 30 minutes to say effectively what many full-length features fail to in two hours. A must watch .
