Watch this video from Colin Marshall that breaks down the futuristic city of Los Angeles in the Spike Jonze movie Her. I knew when I first watched it that this particular Los Angeles didn't quite make any sense with the Los Angeles shown in the film. After all, the creative cuts from in and out of buildings and subway stations just didn't make any sense. But that's ok.
One of the things I didn't realize though -- and I'm kicking myself for not seeing this -- is that there are no cars in the movie Her. It's a utopian dream vision of Los Angeles complete without the thing that makes LA, well, LA! The car! How amazing is that! It all makes so much sense though I think and really shows just how great a city could be if the right set of transportation was set in place.
