You may not believe it, but one of this year’s best movies features puppets. It’s called Anomalisa, written and co-directed by Charlie Kaufman, the genius behind Being John Malkovich, Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Two of the year’s best movies also happen to be among the weirdest movies we’ve seen in ages. Just insanely weird.
