TOP FIVE

1. Anomalisa

Dirs Charlie Kaufman, Duke Johnson

Like Wes Anderson, Charlie Kaufman makes films with such a delicate, intricate eye that they transform ordinary life into something extraordinary. So it's no surprise that, as with Anderson, Kaufman's strongest work finds him eschewing live action for the handmade beauty of stop-motion animation. Anomalisa takes as its subject the crushing normalcy of corporate life, following the fragile love affair between a motivational speaker and a bashful office worker. The inventiveness of Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind is on full display, but this nervous romance feels even more resigned and melancholy about the chronic dissatisfaction that's inseparable from being a thinking, feeling person.
