Director Spike Jonze is known for cerebral, original, offbeat films (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) and this is no exception. Last month’s Esquire cover star Joaquin Phoenix plays an eccentric loner who purchases the world’s first artificially intelligent computer operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson).

With impressive support from Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill. Keep an eye out for the dwarf scene, that’s all we’re saying.
