Trivia

When Samantha is helping Theo at work with proof-reading of some letters she says ".. but I'm not much of a poet so I think I might have messed them up a bit". This may be a reference to an Alan Turing paper on Computing and Artificial Intelligence in which he proposes a possible test of a computer's intelligence by posing questions which the computer answers. He proposes the following question and answer as an example: Q: Please write me a sonnet on the subject of the Forth Bridge. A: Count me out on this one. I never could write poetry. See more »

17 April 2018 | by enginozdilSee all my reviews

Another movie that i say "i should've watched before". Intense romantic drama. Fascinating portrait of loneliness in a post-digital world. Amazingly original screenplay, concept, musics, especially colors and performance from Joaquin Phoenix. This made me stay with myself after the credits have finished, i found myself reflecting on my own life and relationships.
