Review – ‘Anomalisa’

The Telstar Film Review

Release date: 11 March 2016
Running time:
90 mins
David Thewlis, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tom Noonan

In 2008, acclaimed screenwriter Charlie Kaufman made his directorial debut with Synecdoche, New York, a baffling piece which saw Philip Seymour Hoffman’s theatre director disappear down a rabbit hole of ambitious projects, as he attempted to create a life-size replica of New York City inside a warehouse. Kaufman’s follow up Anomalisa has a sense of art imitating life imitating art;  the director spent three years painstakingly creating this moving and effective stop-motion drama. With over one thousand costumes and props meticulously constructed, everything in this world is built with the specific purpose of telling and intimate story about mental illness, loneliness, and 21st century malaise.
