This isn’t your typical animation feature. Rated R for graphic nudity, language and for having strong sexual content, screenwriter, Charlie Kaufman (“Synecdoche, New York”) returned to cinema with his stop-motion and Oscar nominated masterpiece, Anomalisa, to give us a taste of what it means to be human.Heavy, honest and downright odd, the film takes viewers on a surreal ride of love, loneliness and the philosophical questioning of existence of two very human puppets and their meeting at a hotel in Cincinnati.Directors Duke Johnson and Charlie Kaufman create a world of the monotone and the mundane by opening the film with the chatter of voices (Tom Noonan) that overlaps each other in a maddening and claustrophobic way.

One-person plays are rare and not many have received wide circulation or much acclaim. This may be due to one thing: no matter how good a play is, it will succeed or fail depending on the actors in it, and obviously, with a one-person show, all the responsibility falls on a single actor.This can be a tremendous amount of pressure; learning an unusually large number of lines, being onstage non-stop for sometimes two hours or more and perhaps most importantly, having no other actor to interact with and be supported by.
