|Joaquin Phoenix in Her|
How should I evaluate a film that was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Picture and yet was snubbed? Even though its star, Joaquin Phoenix (Theodore Twombly), didn’t get an Oscar nomination—I know, it’s a very competitive year—nevertheless, his performance unquestionably put Her into the race. Phoenix, in nearly every frame of the film, usually has a conversation with his Operating System, Samantha (Scarlett Johansson). He creates a conceivable and captivating emotional life for Theodore. His performance is a masterwork of nuance and subtlety.
