I think anybody who falls in love is a freak, It’s a crazy thing to do. It’s kind of like a form of socially acceptable insanity.
Top: Blade Runner, 1982: the owl in Tyrell’s office that represents the possibility of soul in artificial life. (Rick Deckard is about to meet Rachel, the replicant he falls in love with.)
Bottom: Her, 2014: Theodore Twombly has just accused Samantha, the AI he’s in love with, of not being a person, and she’s left him sitting on this ledge alone. Great moment for the Blade Runner reference, unsubtle or not. (She’s got her talons in him, yep, but she’s also maybe got a soul…)
