Her ★★★★★

Spike Jonze has created one of the most original, funny, endearing, heartbreaking films about love I've ever seen. Never have I seen a film explore pure, raw emotion so authentically and creatively. The world-building is fleshed out and unique, the visual style is gorgeous, and the screenplay develops its characters beautifully. Joaquin Phoenix gives the performance of the year --and possibly of his career-- as a man who is equal parts charming, funny, and desperate. "Her" is not just the best film of 2013. It's one of the best films I've ever seen.
