Anomalisa

Charlie Kaufman’s films are such distinct flavors, heavy on the quirk and human drama, that they’re immediately recognizable, even in animated form. If film is frequently thought of as a director’s medium, Kaufman proves that occasionally a screenwriter’s voice is so specific that it can puncture that thought ever so slightly.   Here in Anomalisa, Kaufman presents an authentic and great... read more

Since I kept hearing some really interesting things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, it gave me pretty much the same feeling I had while watching 'Mary and Max', another very original and very well received animated feature. Indeed, with this movie, just like with 'Mary and Max', while I really admired the work done, I still had a hard time to really connect with the dam... read more

Thoughts Before I Watched This:
1. I didn't realize it was literally only 3 actors for the whole thing.
2. I also thought it was CGI rather than stop motion puppets.
3. I've heard some strange things about this that I'm curious about.
4. Is hearing everyone with the same voice an actual condition?
5. I do like David Thewlis and Jennifer Jason Leigh anyways.
6. C... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- June 2016 (30 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 30min. First Viewing I wanted to love Anomalisa, but I ended up just respecting it. The animation is great and the storytelling is quite strong, as well as an excellent voice cast, but it felt oddly cold and detached. That's likely due to the story, its a story of depression and middle-age crises, but it just missed for me. The scenes with Jennifer Jason Leigh hit quite hard though, with enough passion and empathy to fill a whole movie. If only it had. Still very good though. "

Leffalista 2017 (29 movies items)

"18.3 Netflix new Pitkään ollutkin tämä Kaufmanin animaatio listoilla ja mukava yllätys että leffa oli Netflixiin ilmestynyt. Ehkä jäi vähän vajaaksi siitä mitä odotin, mutta ei tämä kylmäksi silti jättänyt likimainkaan."

2015 Films - Best to Worst (70 movies items)

" At times when watching it I thought too myself that this is one of the best films of 2015. So real, humane and full of emotions. Despite it all being stop-motion puppets, Anomalisa transcended beyond that and gave us a character that felt more real than what many live action films is capable of. Not only thanks to the amazing animation or David Thewlis emotional voice acting, but due to the film fully immersing us into this character's mind. We do truly feel sympathy with him. Yet for every st"
