Anomalisa

anomalisa_posterAt first sight, Anomalisa might be confused as being another animated film, catering to young audiences and with friendly tones and easygoing plots. But for those curious enough to watch this concealed gem, Anomalisa brings a very adult film brimming with hidden meanings, certifying just how deep Kaufman’s work can be. Stop motion animation works favorably in this case, and beholds a unique style when telling the sad tale of Michael Stone, the main protagonist. He is a puppet, and his mask represents society as a whole, from which he desperately wants to escape (along with the monotonous tones of those around him).
