When I first heard of the film, I was skeptical. That feeling didn't last very long after watching the first trailer, "intrigued" was my new feeling about "Her" and after seeing this tonight, the new feeling is "love". I become deeply invested in this film from the onset. "Her" in my opinion is the greatest love story ever put to film period. Until this for me Richard Linklater's "Before" trilogy took the top spot. "Her" shows love in it's truest form. Director Spike Jonze took some of the greatest actors working and made an absolute masterpiece! Joaquin Phoenix was on another planet, his emotions came out so beautifully in every situation that arose in his relationship with Samantha his "os" and girlfriend played by Scarlett Johansson, who's voice work was flawless. I laughed out loud, teared up, and had an absolute blast watching this film. I haven't seen everything from 2013 but right now this is the best film of the year!
