Animated, Comedy drama
Writer Charlie Kaufman joins forces with animator Duke Johnson for this contemporary comedy of manners, and the stop-motion characters they create have a certain bizarre appeal. But Kaufman’s depressive, depressing point of view is more or less the same as it’s ever been – in Synecdoche, New York; Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, etc. – this time embodied by a mopey motivational speaker (voice of David Thewlis) who takes a fling with a meek office worker (Jennifer Jason Leigh) while on a business trip. Kaufman’s dramas give introspection a bad name. He adapted the screenplay from his own audio “sound play,” and directs with Johnson. Actor Tom Noonan voices all the other parts. Animated, but definitely not for children (90 min.).
