Consensus Comparison: Anomalisa January 2, 2016

Your final Film of the Week for 2015 is Anomalisa. And since Only Yesterday has been released in the U.S. on January 1st, that makes it the first film of the new year covered by CRU. (Though bear in mind that the movie was originally released in Japan in 1991.)

If you missed it, I posted the inaugural edition of Too High/Too Low, which can be considered a Consensus Comparison best of. It highlights the most notable differences between the CRU score and the ones for Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic from 2013-15.
