Sober Film Critic James Brown88 - Smartly written, acted, and directed, Anomalisa is an animated film that runs counter to most other fare in its genre in this respect. It's simply on a different level.

Rob from GuysFilmQuest72 - A bit too weird.
Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine70 - I saw this movie twice during the Philadelphia Film Festival. The second time because I needed to kill time before the next screening I came to see, but I was glad to get a second viewing. I found "Anomalisa" to be entrancing, so realistic and dream-like all at the same time. I got fascinated by the slits across the temples. And ultimately I felt so sorry for the title character, her confidence being bolstered by Michael only to be dashed so quickly.
