Review

Praise for Spike Jonze's short film, "I'm Here"

"It's haunting, beautiful, whimsical, and overwhelmingly heartbreaking all at the same time."
—Erik Davis, Cinematical

"Director Spike Jonze has proven again that he can make magic in any format."
—Nicole Sperling, Entertainment Weekly

"The film [is] bristling with ideas and imagination, but doesn't forget the heart either."
—Steven Zeitchik, Los Angeles Times

"Strangely affecting, beautifully made, oddly haunting half-hour film."
—Nathan Rabin, The Onion A.V. Club

I won't go too much into the story for fear of spoiling it, but I will say that it is incredibly sweet and beautifully done.

Fortunately, I was wrong, because not only was it released on DVD, it comes with a beautiful hardcover book, the great soundtrack, and some other cool extras.
J. Rodolfo
The book is well made and filled with stunning photo stills from the film and behind the scenes footage also features many amazing quotes.

Director Spike Jonze (Adaptation, Where the Wild Things Are) collaborated with the vodka company Absolut in the production of the little short film "I'm Here". It was in Absolut's website where I first saw the 30-minute film, and the first thing I thought after watching it was "Damn, it sucks that amazing little short films like this one never get released on DVD". Fortunately, I was wrong, because not only was it released on DVD, it comes with a beautiful hardcover book, the great soundtrack, and some other cool extras.

The book is not only beautiful, but also very insightful and even funny at times. Composed of gorgeous photography and insight into the filmmaking process by the director and crew who worked in the movie, you can feel this was a work of love.

The quality of the DVD is good (certainly a lot better than watching it online), but the real seller is the movie itself. The little love story between two robots in L.A. is really touching and beautiful. The acting and directing are really good too. Definitely one of the best short films I've seen. The CD with the soundtrack is a really cool addition to the set, since that's one of the points that really stand out when you watch the movie.

"I'm Here" is an amazing short film, and "There Are Many of Us" is exactly what a great companion book should be: Informative, insightful and very honest. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful thing, I bought this originally for the soundtrack which is pretty epic. Then I read the storyline for the film and it was beautiful and I knew I had to own it. The book is well made and filled with stunning photo stills from the film and behind the scenes footage also features many amazing quotes. More films need to be packaged in sets like this, I'd buy more movies that's for sure. Also the film is good, watch it.

Spike Jonze's wonderful short film "I'm Here" is presented in this lovely book and DVD package. The book itself is alright and features mainly stills from the production with some concept art and quotes from the director and crew. I would have like more concept art and behind the scenes information. The real reason to buy this is for the DVD of the short film.

The short itself is a wonderful look at the lives of robots living in Los Angeles. I won't go too much into the story for fear of spoiling it, but I will say that it is incredibly sweet and beautifully done. You can find it online if you just want to watch it on your computer.

The package also comes with an audio CD of the music from the film which is a nice bonus as there are a few really great tracks on it.

I highly recommend this to anyone who's a fan of good filmmaking.

I enjoy anything Spike Jonze does, especially when he works with Charlie Kaufman. Now, this is just a review of the movie, which I was able to watch on it's website. I want to purchase this whole package, and will soon, because I'm sure it's completely worth it. You can go check out the film yourself, it's very nice and touching, but still has the nice odd touch that usually appear in his films.
