‘Anomalisa’ Opens At Cable Car

How do they do stop-action smoke? The adult, animated puppet drama ‘Anomalisa’ opens Friday at the Cable Car Cinema. Co-directed by Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson — an Emmy winner for that stop-motion Christmas episode of Community — this R-rated puppet-love gem was the first animated film to win the Grand Jury prize at the Venice Film Festival and has been nominated for an Oscar in the ‘Animated Feature Film’ category. Rolling Stone calls it a “masterpiece.”

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.

Rated R. Running time 90 minutes.

Opens Friday, January 22, Cable Car Cinema, 204 South Main Street, (directions)
