Amazing what an indie soundtrack can do. That, and some fun special effects. All in the service of solid storytelling. “I’m Here” feels like the little movie that could.
I was particularly moved by this short film from Spike Jonze about a couple of robots who fall in love. Who says that a bunch of motherboards, some electrical wire, and a lot of plastic casing equals a soulless form? There’s more heart in this movie–and emanating from these mechanical characters–than many of us humans experience on any given day.
