Anomalisa (2015)

An extraordinary film, directed by Duke Johnson and Charlie Kaufman (the mind behind Being John Malkovich and Adaptation), it features stop-motion animated puppets halfway between human and Sesame Street, and a plot that deals with the mundanity of life. The film contains sex, swearing and nihilism, and is truly unlike anything you’ve ever seen before: moving, thought-provoking and haunting.
