Joaquin Phoenix in Her.
On this week's Voice Film Club podcast, this paper's film critics talk about Spike Jonze's Her and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, in addition to the wave of films all coming out before the year's over. Listen to it on iTunes or below on Soundcloud.

In Her, Joaquin Phoenix plays a former L.A. Weekly writer who falls in love with his phone's OS, voiced by Scarlett Johansson. (Real-life Weekly writer Amy Nicholson profiles Phoenix in this week's L.A. Weekly cover story.)

We also hear Voice critics Alan Scherstuhl and Stephanie Zacharek discuss with Nicholson Anchorman 2, the Adam McKay/Will Ferrell sequel that seems to be reaching for even more catch-phrases, but is still expectedly very funny and very crass.
