Anomalisa

Just finished watching Anomalisa. Film by Charlie Kaufman. One of my favorite writers. My brother has been telling me to watch this movie for a long time now. He said It was something I would really like. But I had to find myself in the mood to watch it. I didn’t want to just be munching on snacks and not pay attention. And this type of movie will be heavy so I needed to be in the mood.

One thing that put me off about the film was the stop motion animation. I’m not really a fan of it. But wow, did it work with this film. It reminds me of Waking Life. I don’t like animation either, but I love Waking Life.

I was in a funky mood. Got in an argument with the wife. Had a very long and weekend with the kids. I feel tired and I feel unhealthy. I have work stress and just stress in general. Tired and stressed and fat. Getting older.

I downloaded Anomalisa cause I was looking for something that will help me think. Something that would help me feel less lonely. Funny thing about watching a sort of depressing movie, it makes you less depressed. Probably cause it lets you know that you are not alone in this world. Someone else feels similar things.

Anyway I highly recommend this movie.
