  • Anomalisa

    8:20pm

    • Director: Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson
    • Genre(s): Drama, Fantasy, Comedy, Animation
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 90 min.
    "Leave it to writer, director, and professional expectation-defier Charlie Kaufman to make existential angst so completely delightful. "
    - Sarah Kurchak, Consequence of Sound
    "Anomalisa might be bizarre, surreal and far out, but it always feels paradoxically real, grounded and deeply true. "
    - John Bleasdale, CineVue
    "This is a wonderfully odd consideration of those questions about love, pain, solitude and human connection we all ask; its emotional power creeps out from under the subtle humor and leaves a subcutaneous imprint that lingers long after the movie is over. "
    - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
    "There’s something strange and dreamlike and delicate and beautiful about Anomalisa, an animated film for grown-ups that takes a long while to make its point, but does so with a dark brilliance. "
    - Kyle Smith, New York Post
    "Charlie Kaufman teams with stop-motion wiz Duke Johnson to bring his conceptual stageplay to life, resulting in another uniquely cerebral yet satisfying bout of self-analysis. "
    - Peter Debruge, Variety
    "Charlie Kaufman is back – with a wistful, resonant film, a bracing, wry, honest dose of cinematic melancholy. "
    - Lee Marshall, Screen International
    "With spot-on vocal performances from Thewlis, Leigh and Tom Noonan, the film is nothing less than mesmerizing — and must viewing for serious cinephiles. "
    - Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
    "Singular and stunning … "
    - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
    "Anomalisa’s existence is a minor miracle on multiple levels, from the Kickstarter campaign that funded it to the oh-so-delicate way the film creeps up on you, transitioning from a low-key dark night of the soul into something warm, human and surprisingly tender. "
    - Peter Debruge, Variety
    "Filtered through Kaufman’s searching mind and soulful brilliance, the result is a masterpiece. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "It’s Chekhovian screwball, a perfect little tale of love (or thereabouts) in bloom among the weeds of an ordinary life. It feels like a classic already. "
    - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
    "Anomalisa is an extraordinarily wise film about the reasons we turn to other people and the enormous difficulty of doing so. "
    - Drew McWeeny, HitFix
  • Carol

    6:00pm

    Carol
    • Starring: Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler
    • Director: Todd Haynes
    • Genre(s): Drama, Romance
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 118 min.
    "An exquisitely drawn, deeply felt love story that teases out every shadow and nuance of its characters’ inner lives with supreme intelligence, breathtaking poise and filmmaking craft of the most sophisticated yet accessible order. "
    - Justin Chang, Variety
    "A beautiful film in every way, immaculately made, and featuring two pristine actresses glowing across rooms and tousled bedclothes at each other like beacons of tentative, unspoken hope. "
    - Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
    "A nuanced tale of mutual attraction that reflects a filmmaker and cast operating at the height of their powers, rendering complex circumstances in strikingly personal terms. "
    - Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
    "A beautiful entity, near flawless in design, any talk of accolades certainly seems justified. "
    - Rory O'Connor, CineVue
    "Carol is gorgeous, gently groundbreaking, and might be the saddest thing you’ll ever see. More than hugely accomplished cinema, it’s an exquisite work of American art, rippling with a very specific mid-century melancholy, understanding love as the riskiest but most necessary gamble in anyone’s experience. "
    - Tim Robey, The Telegraph
