‘Anomalisa’ review: More than just cinema’s best puppet sex scene
TORONTO — The mix of twisted creativity and heartache that made his screenplays for Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Adaptation. was evident in Charlie Kaufman’s first and only film as a director Synecdoche, New York
But that film, which starred the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, was a gargantuan, messy undertaking with a nihilistic philosophy that left, intentionally or not, many viewers uncomfortable and unfulfilled
Anomalisa, while still quite strange, is much more delicate, and will likely connect with audiences looking for offbeat but not TOO offbeat fare.
