"Sad, beautiful, the wittiest film of the year, ANOMALISA takes place largely in a hotel room in Cincinnati..." - 12/29/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


"[B]eautifully distinctive....Kaufman and Johnson have designed the puppets with numerous imperfections, both human and mechanical, which makes the movie almost unbearably poignant at some times..." -- Grade: A- - 12/30/2015 A.V. Club


"The sad and stingingly painful ANOMALISA, a beautiful big-screen whatsit, features a throng of whiners, malcontents and depressives along with one bright soul who hasn’t let disappointment break her." - 12/30/2015 New York Times


"ANOMALISA is a staggeringly inventive Trojan horse of a film. It dazzles our senses with a shock of the new." -- Grade: A - 12/23/2015 Entertainment Weekly


"[B]oth beautiful and heartbreaking, and ultimately unforgettable. Kaufman has done it again, writing a deeply flawed male protagonist and a woman who seems so incredibly ideal despite her imperfections, and he’s engineered it so that we fall in love..." - 09/05/2015 Variety


"[A] film that manages at once to be moving, horribly funny and deeply disturbing." - 09/28/2015 Film Comment


4 stars out of 4 -- "Need proof that animation can not only equal live-action filmmaking but beat the flesh-and-blood version at its own game? Try ANOMALISA, as haunting and hypnotic an R-rated love story for grownups as you’ll see anywhere." - 01/06/2016 Rolling Stone


"[I]t is a pinpoint-accurate encapsulation of some of the most banal AND some of the most exhilarating moments virtually all of us have experienced at some point in our lives." - 01/07/2016 Chicago Sun-Times


"It's Charlie Kaufman's depressive, mordant, groping view of humanity, shot through with surprise on every level: the voice acting, the curious turns of plot, the sadness, the explicit raunch." - 12/11/2015 Hollywood Reporter


"[T]here’s no doubt he’s getting at something painfully familiar beneath his movie’s self-conscious artifice: the unsettling question of just what it is that’s pulling our strings, and who can possibly love us despite our obvious cracks." - 01/07/2016 Washington Post


"It is a minor miracle of a movie, the most beautiful, haunting, empathetic, tender, funny 90 minutes of the year so far." - 02/17/2016 Empire


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is his most human and recognisable work....The manifold details of Anomalisa’s contained world are precisely correct." - 03/06/2015 Total Film


3 stars out of 5 -- "Visually, it’s quite brilliant, offering further proof that animation remains at the very cutting edge of cinema..." - 03/13/2016 The Guardian
