Only at around midway through this movie did I realize Joaquin Phoenix was not Michael Stuhlbarg, but they definitely look very much alike. On the movie itself: very moody, portraying itself through colors and epochs. Red, white, jour, nuite. Jonze has been slowly imposing his own style unto his work, maturing along the way to more meaningful films. His transition from his first screenplay film Where the Wild Things Are and his second one (Her), shows this.
