Sleepless

A frustratingly not-terrible action thriller.

The Book of Love

The feature debut of director and co-writer Bill Purple does not feature a single authentic moment. Imperfect would actually be a step up.

Charlie Kaufman Retrospective Coming to NY, LA, Chicago, San Francisco

It's been seven years since a new Charlie Kaufman movie has gotten inside the heads of theatergoers. That disheartening, minimizing, fittingly-Kaufman-esque trend is finally broken with the upcoming release of his stop-motion phenomenon "Anomalisa," which he co-wrote and co-directed with Duke Johnson. 

To celebrate, Paramount Pictures and Landmark Theatres are giving fans of the writer/director's work a way to get their big-screen fill of the absurdist images birthed by his singular screenplays. From January 4-7, exclusive Landmark theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco will host a retrospective of films based on Kaufman's scripts, from Spike Jonze's "Being John Malkovich" to Michel Gondry's "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" to "Anomalisa." The afternoon showings of the films will take place at the following venues: Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York, The Landmark in Los Angeles, Chicago's Century Centre Cinema, and the Embarcadero Center Cinema in San Francisco. 

Those in New York and Los Angeles will have the chance to speak with talent from "Anomalisa" during certain screenings. On Monday, January 4, the 7:30pm showing of "Anomalisa" will feature a Q&A with Kaufman, his co-director Duke Johnson, and one of the film's producers, Rosa Tran. On Thursday, January 7, attendees of a 7:30pm showing of "Anomalisa" will experience a Q&A with the film's distinct, essential voice talent, Tom Noonan

The schedule for the entire Charlie Kaufman retrospective is as follows: 

"Being John Malkovich
