Watch Online: Spike Jonze's Wonderful Short Film 'I'm Here'
Remember that Spike Jonze directed short film that all of us were raving about from Sundance this year? Well, after a fairly short wait the film has arrived online in its entirety for your viewing pleasure. Titled I'm Here, the short is about two robots who fall in love, set in a world a bit different from our own. It's kind of hard to describe, but it's a wonderful film, one of the few shorts I've ever felt compelled by enough to feature on the site. Absolut (who financed the film) has put a cap on how many people can watch it, so you'll have to hit the official website at the right to see it, but I highly suggest checking it out. It truly is an amazing short!
I'm Here is written and directed by visionary filmmaker and artist Spike Jonze, of the films Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, and Where the Wild Things Are previously. This 31 minute short film stars British actor Andrew Garfield and actress Sienna Guillory, one of Maxim's 100 sexiest women. It was funded by Absolut Vodka as a promo for the liquor, but was also available for sale at the Sundance Film Festival. I'm not sure this will be arriving in theaters at all, but I hope it's eventually going to be available on DVD with some extra behind-the-scenes footage, because I'd love to see more from this. What did you think?
