Spike Jonze's critically acclaimed 'Her' tells the story of a depressed man who falls in love with the sentient operating system of his mobile phone, as voiced by an especially sultry Scarlett Johansson. The operating system, which calls itself Samantha, soon reciprocates his feelings and - without spoiling anything - refuses to allow such pesky details as her lack of a corporeal form get in the way of some proper mano-a-machina filth. Jonze's film is hardly the first time sexy AIs have made their way to the big screen, although is perhaps the most delicately handled representation to date. The movie industry's fascination with sexually suggestive AIs and robots has been a recurring theme since Fritz Lang's Metropolis, and continues unabated to this day. As such an essential part of movie history, let's take a look back at some of the sexiest female artificial intelligences to ever grace the silver screen. You know, for academic analysis.
