Theory: Spike Jonze made "Her" in response to LIT and divorce from Sofia

#1 Post by Suntory » Sat Sep 22, 2018 8:42 pm

I was searching (google) for something related to LiT and some search results came up on reddit.
There are a bunch of LiT discussions on there including one which mentions this film and a separate post which links to this video
comparing the two side by side:

Lost in Translation // Her: An Unloved Story

I'm gobsmacked! I was never interested in seeing that movie but now I think I am!

From what I have read, the John / Charlotte relationship was to some degree a reflection of Spike and Charlotte and that Spike made
Her in response and in reflection about his breakup and divorce from Sofia.
For example:
