Anomalisa is a worthy addition to Kaufman's formidable filmography.
August 2, 2019
The results are as magnificent as they are human.
July 17, 2019
The longtime aficionado of Kaufman's work might suspect there's more up his sleeve, only to find themselves disappointed.
July 5, 2019
It's deceptively simple for a Kaufman film, but there's a devastating sense of truth in its melancholy portrait of mid-life ennui.
May 31, 2019
These oh-so-recognizable puppets are so human and that's what makes Anomalisa so subconsciously unnerving and haunting.
April 17, 2019
Fun, no. Compelling, yes. Anomalisa is filled with more longing and palpable loneliness than many other live action films registered this year.
April 15, 2019
A somewhat cynical yet thought provoking stop motion animated film.
April 9, 2019
A late-breaking dream sequence is perhaps a slice of Kaufman too far, threatening to derail this beautiful journey through its sheer lack of subtlety - thankfully though, a compelling, hugely affecting final sequence brings it all back with panache.
April 9, 2019
In choosing a medium that distances audience from onscreen subject, Kaufman has drawn the two closer together, telling a universal human story with puppets.
April 8, 2019
Anomalisa might be bizarre, surreal and far out, but it always feels paradoxically real, grounded and deeply true.
March 2, 2019
Even if you're used to Kaufman's quirks, Anomalisa will still be unlike anything you've ever seen before.
December 29, 2018
Anomalisa no es una experiencia ligera, pero Kaufman ha probado que sin importar qué tan difuso sea el subtexto, si hay algo que podemos entender es lo que significa ser humano.
December 7, 2018
For all its naturalism and attention to detail, the conceit of Anomalisa, though beautifully executed, smacks of gimmickry.
November 4, 2018
It's another of Kaufman's ingenious works that instinctively understands the sometimes bathetic human quest for divinity amid an overarchingly mundane social landscape.
November 3, 2018
Anomalisa is not just a character study about one self-defeating man who can't see the forest for the trees, but one that rather overtly hints at all the other character studies (and voices) worthy of our attention.
October 17, 2018
Anomalisa looks like Robot Chicken and behaves like Ingmar Bergman. And such a whimsical, pensive pairing could only thrive under writer Charlie Kaufman.
August 30, 2018
The marionette puppets show more humanity than many other live actors in the theater today.
August 29, 2018
Like a stop-motion animation that traumatized you in grade school and is now played upon the troubles of adulthood.
August 23, 2018
Kaufman has created a tiny, nightmare mirror of the real world, a truly uncanny valley that pushes existential despair to the limit.
August 23, 2018
Although discombobulating at first, the approach pays off when the story gets going.
