Anomalisa | Ratings & Reviews

"You don't get much more niche than Anomalisa – a crowd-funded stop-motion animation from master headchuffer Charlie Kaufman, writer of Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and Adaptation. Unheard from since his frustrating 2008 directorial debut Synecdoche, New York, Kaufman creates cinema of grouchy self-doubt and grotesque self-deception, but anyone not already clued-in may wonder what they’ve stumbled upon."

"A minor miracle on multiple levels, from the Kickstarter campaign that funded it to the oh-so-delicate way the film creeps up on you..."


"It's both soaringly romantic and truly sad."

Time OutTime Out

"Kaufman and Johnson tease out the possible causes and effects of Michael's crisis with great imagination..."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"The sad and stingingly painful “Anomalisa,” a beautiful big-screen whatsit, features a throng of whiners, malcontents and depressives along with one bright soul who hasn’t let disappointment break her."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"A movie with wit to burn and enough incidental touches that the total achievement feels immense."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Filtered through Kaufman's searching mind and soulful brilliance, the result is a masterpiece."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Charlie Kaufman is back. It's good to hear his voice."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"A wonderfully odd consideration of those questions about love, pain, solitude and human connection we all ask..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Gently rolls over you like a wave, enveloping you into its world and staying with you long after."
