“Anomalisa” Trailer


Director: Duke Johnson, Charlie Kaufman (Synecdoche, New York)

Starring: Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Thewlis, Tom Noonan

Synopsis: A traveler settles down in a hotel only to encounter people and situations that inspire him and spark contemplation on the the human condition.

Notes: Charlie Kaufman is famous for his imaginative scripts, ranging form Being John Malkovich to Adaptation. He’s only conquered one directorial work, Synecdoche, New York, but it made an explosive reception with critics. This new project seems to only continue Kaufman’s unique touch of surreality, blending stop-motion, comedy, drama, and absurdity. Based on reviews and limited sneak peeks so far, this appears to be another completely original universe and an otherworldly experience that will surely keep it’s best secrets hidden until showtime.
