What are critics saying?


The Guardian by Catherine Shoard

Anomalisa is a movie with wit to burn (look out for the Sarah Brightman line and the meeting room pit) and enough incidental touches that the total achievement feels immense.


The Hollywood Reporter by David Rooney

This is a wonderfully odd consideration of those questions about love, pain, solitude and human connection we all ask; its emotional power creeps out from under the subtle humor and leaves a subcutaneous imprint that lingers long after the movie is over.


Hitfix by Drew McWeeny

Anomalisa is an extraordinarily wise film about the reasons we turn to other people and the enormous difficulty of doing so.


IndieWire by Eric Kohn

A disorienting puzzle of a movie with many exhilarating pieces, Anomalisa nevertheless maintains a straightforward trajectory involving Michael's internal strife.


CineVue by John Bleasdale

Anomalisa might be bizarre, surreal and far out, but it always feels paradoxically real, grounded and deeply true.


Variety by Peter Debruge

Anomalisa’s existence is a minor miracle on multiple levels, from the Kickstarter campaign that funded it (the credits give “special thanks” to 1,070 names) to the oh-so-delicate way the film creeps up on you, transitioning from a low-key dark night of the soul into something warm, human and surprisingly tender.


The Telegraph by Robbie Collin

Kaufman and Johnson tease out the possible causes and effects of Michael’s crisis with great imagination, tilting your sympathies so subtly as they do so that you don’t even feel it going on.


The Playlist by Rodrigo Perez

Kaufman and fellow director Duke Johnson strike the right balance here, deftly mixing spiritual crisis and despondency with moments of painful awkwardness and biting hilarity.
