SCENES OF ANOMALISA: A FILM BY CHARLIE KAUFMAN. Duke Johnson. Universe Publishing, Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 2016. 64 pp. 20 x 20 cm. ISBN 9780789332561 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Charlie Kaufman's Anomalisa is a stop-motion animated film about a man crippled by the mundanity of his life. Michael (voiced by David Thewlis), a motivational speaker, hears everyone having, quite literally, the same voice and having the same face. From the passengers on the airplane to the employees at the hotel to his ex girlfriend, each of the characters (all voiced by Tom Noonan) have the same voices and faces. Until he meets Lisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a mousy woman with poor self-image who sounds and looks completely different than everyone else in the world. Michael and Lisa's instant attraction and affair quickly turns from exciting to boring, though, when she, too, begins to look and sound like everyone else. As Lisa's uniqueness fades, Michael becomes disenchanted, and returns home to his family and friends, all of whom look and sound alike. A meditation on life, love, wants, needs, and perceptions of self and others, Anomalisa is Charlie Kaufman at his best.
