Beside this, what does Anomalisa mean?
The Title Is A True Charlie Kaufman Original. At least, it didn't until Kaufman invented it. The word "Anomalisa" is coined by Michael in the film, who, after meeting Lisa, determines that she is both an anomaly (meaning not the norm, unique) and named Lisa (self explanatory). Thus, she is Anomalisa (Anomaly + Lisa).
Also Know, why are all the voices in Anomalisa male?
The sameness of the voices suggests self-absoption, lack of connection, isolation, lack of empathy. It's as if the script writer, Charlie Kaufman is suggesting that despite being the star of our own movie, we cannot truly find fulfillment unless we can forge connections with other people.
What is the movie Anomalisa about?
An inspirational speaker (David Thewlis) becomes reinvigorated after meeting a lively woman (Jennifer Jason Leigh) who shakes up his mundane existence.
Does Charlie Kaufman have a brother?
In other words, no, Charlie does not have a twin brother named Donald, even though he shares credit on the screenplay. "Adaptation" weaves back and forth between reality and fiction so skillfully, however, that if Charlie doesn't have a twin he might as well.
