paradoxicalsentiments:

reasons why I find the surfacing visual comparisons between Her and Lost in Translation interesting

  • Lost in Translation was released while Spike Jonze and Sofia Coppola were still married, but barely. The husband in the film, John, is a photographer (like Spike) and Sofia even admitted in an interview, “there are elements of [Spike] in there, elements of experiences. There are elements of me in all the characters.”
  • Spike Jonze isn’t about to admit that Her is about his marriage to Sofia, he’s pretty private about his private life, but all I’m saying is that the initials of the two female love interests in the movie are S for Samantha and C for Catherine and SC = Sofia Coppola and if you want to tell me I thought about this too hard, believe me I already know
  • Scarlett Johansson, while not the first pick to play Samantha, is the focal point of both movies (maybe it’s a happy accident)

anyway, without delving into more unnecessary details, I like to think that these movies convey a detached, emotional dialogue between ex-spouses. as far as I’m concerned, Sofia and Spike basically made movies about each other. there isn’t any real need to read into them this way, but I did and if you’re interested a few other people did too

and if you take the personal affiliations out of it, they’re clearly matched on an aesthetic level, which I can’t see as a coincidence. too many frames are too similar. Spike knew what he was doing.
