Charlie Kaufman on Why 'Anomalisa''s Puppets Feel So Real

Publish date:

Anomalisa writer and co-director Charlie Kaufman talks to Vulture about why the stop-motion puppets of the film somehow feel even more real as characters than even actors would.

"I think maybe because they’re not actors, you’re not looking and going, Oh, you know, that’s whoever playing this part," Kaufman says. "I remember when I saw The Celebration, I didn’t recognize any of those actors, and God, that movie affected me so much. You don’t get to do that in movies today because everything is about who you get in order to get financing. Not that I have anything against actors. I love great actors."

Check out Kaufman, co-director Duke Johnson and star Jennifer Jason Leigh in discussion about the film below.
