      Suzette Smith Bitch Media Kaufman has created a very smart movie, and I ended up liking it for what it was. It is not a heartwarming romp. It is a dense, sneaky movie about narcissism, cruelty, and Lisa's own shy resilience. Feb 9, 2021 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters Anomalisa is fascinating, and I cannot say I was ever bored by anything that Kaufman and Johnson were choosing to show me. Rated: 3/4 Aug 16, 2016 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire By the time Michael and Lisa are up in that hotel room, trying so heroically to say the right thing, the picture has transcended its gimmicks. Apr 27, 2016 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson Examining "Anomalisa" for the romance and humanity is more arduous than liberating for what Kaufman is trying to say about inspiration. Rated: 1/5 Aug 14, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Those who give themselves over to Anomalisa will find a brilliant and profound look through Kaufman's eyes, always a rare and exceptional experience. Rated: 4/4 Apr 23, 2022 Full Review Jason Adams My New Plaid Pants Charlie Kaufman makes love like nobody else. He builds it up from the basement, all the gangly genitals of it, knickers whittled and shined up, authentically imperfectly exquisite. He is the poet of our age Rated: A Jul 2, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Juan N What I find interesting about this film is that while The Mask and Scott Pilgrim are excellent examples of live-action films that feel animated, Anomalisa is an animated film that feels like a live-action film. It's a gorgeous movie to check out. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/05/23 Full Review Emilliano Jr S Surprisingly it was good. Not your typical animation. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/12/23 Full Review Gareth v A movie about a man's mundane life that takes a turn one night when he meets a stranger on a business trip. One of the great strengths of this movie is it's use of stop motion animation and how much emotion is generated from the models. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/16/23 Full Review Aidan S Like every other Charlie Kaufman movie, it's a depressing, intricate, deeply relatable story. Its themes deeply connected with me as the main character's tendencies deeply-mirrored some of the parts of my own personality that I'm ashamed of. The puppetry and stop motion were beautifully done, at times moving with such weight and complexity of motions that if I blurred my eyes I could've believed it was live-action. It was a wonderful movie that made me sad, uncomfortable, and begin re-evaluating my priorities. Another Masterpiece! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/11/22 Full Review Serge L The film goes on a tangent slowly but surely to leave us speechless at the end. A treatise on everyday views and mental illness? Illusions and truth collide. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/04/22 Full Review Audience Member This movie is amazing!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/19/22 Full Review Read all reviews
