Anomalisa (2015)

Director(s): Duke Johnson, Charlie Kaufman. Cast (voices): David Thewlis, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tom Noonan.. 90 min. Rated R. Animation.

The night and next morning of a man's business trip to Cincinnati, where he has some dirty laundry from a past life. In this stop-motion animation, Charlie Kaufman continues his favorite theme of a society of egocentric individuals; almost an extension of Being John Malkovich. People are semi-robots, and the hero hears every one's voice as the same male voice - culminating in a moment of artistic brilliance, when the only person who was attractive enough to have a female voice, also loses its attraction. You'll have to see it to get what I mean, and then, you'll never forget the moment.
