My Thoughts on With Love and a Major Organ

With Love and a Major Organ is built around an excellent lead performance by Anna Maguire, who can progress from recording love poems in neon-lit fantasy sequences to having a significant change in personality in the second half when she quite literally becomes a heartless individual. The film is a metaphor for how our dependence on technology can prevent the development of true interpersonal connections. With its mix of comedy, romance, fantasy, and science fiction, With Love and a Major Organ is a truly magnificent film.
