This week on The Incomparable, I’m joined by John Siracusa, Brian Hamilton, and David J. Loehr to talk about “Her” and “Ex Machina,”, two films about artificial women and the men who love them. Scarlett Johansson’s Samantha wants to send a ‘Dear John’ update to all humanity, while Alicia Vikander’s Ava has more in mind than pleasant dinner conversation. What do these films say about online relationships, society’s power dynamics, and tech-industry culture?
