Directed by:
Kevin Kauufman &
Duke Johnson

Starring:
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Tom Noonan
David Thewlis

Genre: animation

90 minutes

Rating: R

An eerily detailed puppet animation about a motivational speaker who spends one unhappy night in a Cincinnati hotel. It is really funnyand incidentally boasts one of the most extraordinarily real sexscenes in film history. It also scared me the waya top-notch horror or a sci-fi dystopia might. Being amused or
scared at Anomalisa feels like choosing between the blue pill or the red pill in The Matrix
.
