Quantcast
"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

photo for 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’s 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 and Duke Johnson, this stop-motion animation wonder is a darkly comedic and surreal stop-motion journey of a man’s long night of the soul. Vitals: Director: Duke Johnson, Charlie Kaufman. Stars: Voices of Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Thewlis, Tom Noonan. 2015, CC, MPAA rating: R, 90 min., Comedy-Fantasy, Box office gross: $2.648 million, Paramount.
