ANOMALISA Trailer Considers The Human Condition
Easily one of the cinematic highlights of the year, Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson's animated drama Anomalisa was one of the big sales at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, and for good reason. 

The first trailer for the film has arrived, and the focus is on 'big question' profundity, with a hint of intimacy. The humour of the film is not showcased here, but this is likely due to how little nuance and context you can pack into a short trailer. If you, like me, are deeply affected by the dulcet vocal tones of David Thewlis, then this is a small slice of heaven, as is the film.

Suffice it to say, when this starts to platform release on December 30th (if you live in the US), you might want to clear some space in your calendar.

Well now, this looks intriguing.

This was a technically stunning movie, with revolutionary puppet animation that proves beyond doubt that stop motion animation of a practical model brings more life to characters and audience involvement in their story than even the most advanced digital wizardry. The performances from David Thewlis and Jennifer Jason Leigh (I usually deeply dislike Leigh) were extremely heartfelt. The story, when you strip away everything else, is basically just another account of an immature, unlikable man having a midlife crisis. But Kaufman elevates the hackneyed subject matter with his fresh approach and really pulls you in.
