    ★★★★

    - Really enjoyed the performances from Claire Foy, Jay Pharoah and Joshua Leonard.  

    - I always enjoy the authentic performances Soderbergh gets out of non-actors.

    *Think Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban, but worse.

The rest of the film is a terribly emotional, coming-of-age film about a forced friendship that into something that…

    Anomalisa

    ★★★★

    It's pretty ironic that a film about a man growing tired of the mundanity of his life, could make things so mundane seem so interesting due to the decision to make Anomalisa a stop-motion animated film. And that animation is pretty gorgeous, including the odd way the faces are constructed in various partitions.

    I loved the idea of everyone, beside the main character, having the same voice. Even if it gave the film a bit of a South Park/Team America:…
