"Sometimes there's no lesson. That's a lesson in itself."

Call the maid for turn down service, because this month JJ and Steve take on a movie that takes place in a hotel room. JJ and Steve spend time with Charlie Kaufman’s 2015 film, Anomalisa and discuss why it is an unsettling film. Although they both agree it is not a film that they will watch again, they end up giving it three stars. What is it that they find so compelling in the stop-motion animated film? Perhaps it’s the ever present voice of Tom Noonan, or could it be the rousing speech delivered by Michael Stone at the film’s climax? Listen in to this month’s Trailer Rewind to find out what makes Anomalisa an anomaly.
