War Machine vs. War Horse: Anomalisa (Adaptation vs. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)

On this episode we hang out inside Charlie Kaufman’s head in honor of his latest film ANOMALISA. This film about being trapped in one own’s skin and being unable to connect with loved ones inspires a look back at previous Kaufman attempts to tackle these themes in ADAPTATION where Nicolas Cage plays… well, Charlie Kaufman who fails to remove himself from a screenwriting job adapting a book about flowers. And in ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet play a brokenhearted former couple who have removed the memory of their failed relationship and in the process lose part of their own respective identities. But first, the identity of those around David Thewlis becomes hard to distinguish in new release ANOMALISA.
