Cover Story: The Best Movies of 2013 and Joaquin Phoenix

This year, in addition to a feature on the star of Her -- one Joaquin Phoenix -- we offer you not one but three Best Movies lists from an assortment of film critics.

This is your chance to see if your tastes most closely mirror film critic Amy Nicholson who likes The Act of Killing, Her and Nebraska, among others.

Or are you closer to Stephanie Zacharek who singles out Gravity, Blue Is the Warmest Color and Inside Llewyn Davis in her best of assessment.

And then there's Houston's own Pete Vonder Haar who decided to narrow his focus to the films you have a chance of seeing in Houston. Twelve Years a Slave, Mud and Pacific Rim made his list.

For more on each list as well as an interview with actor musician Joaquin Phoenix, turn to this week's cover story The Year in Movies 2013.
