After only a few moments of contemplating Charlie Kaufman’s existential musings in Anomalisa do we all but forget that the characters inhabiting the screen are stop-motion animations. Such is the quality of the writing and miraculous attention to detail that an assembled cast of puppets can teach us as much, if not more, about the human condition as any flesh and blood performers. Seven years on from his directorial debut Synecdoche, New York, new film Anomalisa sees the one and only Charlie Kaufman at his spellbinding, beguiling and perceptive best.
Anomalisa hits UK cinemas Friday 11th March and is a must-see. Head over to CineVue here to read the full review!
