Welcome to Scotch and Cinema! This week we checked out the new Spike Jonze film her starring Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, and Amy Adams.
Tune in to hear more about the Academy Award nominated soundtrack to the film featuring Arcade Fire. We also discuss a short documentary by director Jonze’s friend, regarding love in the modern age. What does it mean to you?

All of that popcorn can make you thirsty. Here’s a fun drinking game to play with friends while you watch Spike Jonze’s new film. We call it “Slur.”
(Please remember to drink responsibly… unless you don’t want to of course!)
I. Anytime Johansson’s voice is breathy – which makes no sense because she is an operating system and therefore does not have to breathe – DRINK.
II. Anytime a character seems unaffected by behavior that would instantly and blatantly bother somebody from our time – DRINK
III. Anytime a character is obviously bothered by behavior that someone from our time would also be bothered by – DRINK TWICE
IV. At three random points throughout the film, pause it. Everyone in the room take a guess at how much longer the film has left. Whoever is the furthest away – FINISH YOUR DRINK
