Take it from CyberGeek #1, Spike Jonze and his cast did their thing — they created an eloquent, realistic, tech-driven near-future sci-fi flick that’s actually all about the human heart and soul. This one will stick in your head, especially if you’re listening toward the end. (Oh, and BTW: donot let the corny commercial throw you off.)
