Was auch immer im amerikanischen Film gerade läuft, es gibt noch eine zweite Richtung: Die des Charlie Kaufman. Obwohl er bis dahin mehr Drehbücher verfasst hat als Filme inszeniert, muss er als Autor gelten.

What a better way to end the year is to talk about "Anomalisa", one of my most anticipated movie of 2015. Charlie Kaufman is an inspiration, as a writer and now a director. Synecdoche, New York is one of my all time favorite movies, and yeah it's for everyone, but I personally loved it as with every repeat viewings of the movie made my love each more. Now we've got Anomalisa, Kaufman's new film and I did have the pleasure of watching the movie last night, I thought it was freaking fantastic. He did it again …
