ANOMALISA – Trailer (2015) – Paramount Pictures

From writer Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Duke Johnson (Moral Orel, Frankenhole) comes Anomalisa.

Michael Stone, husband, father and respected author of “How May I Help You Help Them?” is a man crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to Cincinnati, where he’s scheduled to speak at a convention of customer service professionals, he checks into the Fregoli Hotel. There, he is amazed to discover a possible escape from his desperation in the form of an unassuming Akron baked goods sales rep, Lisa, who may or may not be the love of his life. A beautifully tender and absurdly humorous dreamscape, from the brilliant minds of Charlie Kaufman (SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK) and Duke Johnson (“Community” episode, Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas), this stop-motion animation wonder features the vocal cast of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tom Noonan and David Thewlis and a stirring strings-based score by Carter Burwell. The darkly comedic and surreal stop-motion journey of a man’s long night of the soul, ANOMALISA confirms Charlie Kaufman’s place amongst the most important of American filmmakers, and announces Duke Johnson as a major creative force.

In select theatres December 30th. Everywhere January

Directors: Charlie Kaufman & Duke Johnson

Starring: Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Thewlis, Tom Noonan

    enough with the dick sucking critics… "oh it's art" "uh it has a lot of meaning if u think about it"… the movie is dog shit. it's a very very bad movie, with the story, realism, phylosophy, characters, depth, drama… it has nothing to do with anxiety and depression, the sex scene is total shite and it's like bad porno with bad actors, absolutely meaningless and avoidable… the taxi scene, the speach, and the voices thing were decent, the rest of the movie was just 90 minutes wasted of my meaningless life (still has more meaning than this $8 million shittypiece)

    "I do not grasp the other in order to dominate; I respond, instead, to the face's ephiphany" – Emmanuel Levinas. This movie could be a successful film version of Levinas' philosophical masterpiece – "Totality and Infinity"

    This film speaks to so many human experiences that cannot be named, and it does its best to whisper to them in this trailer. It does so extraordinarily – and in so, it is so lacking, but in the most complete way possible.

    I remembered that 3 years ago, me and my grandfather watched this movie together. At first, I didn’t really understand about this film but my grandfather cried a lot and hugged me. Today is 1 year after his death (of old age), this just appears in my Recommendation and now I know why he cried.

    Miss you, grandpa :,(

    Yeah… this trailers advertising a different one to the movie I watched.
    Not impressed… I mean, yeah I am but, ultimately no… it’s getting into odd weird territory when I just like weird. Help me someone. Explain it. It’s not uplifting, it’s not insightful, it’s not moving, it’s a big nothing.

    Had great potential at the beggining, but after all it could be called “Delusions of a white old men”. The main character is creepy narcissist under the disguse of a “lonely, sad man”. Every girl is extremely insecure and obsessed, and every character is lazily written. A mediocre movie made to be adored by people who pretend to be cult and “deep”.

    I love this film, partially because of how realistically disturbing the concepts, and execution are. This film, just like Morbius, has stuck with me for quite some time.
