    This movie is absolutely gorgeous. Some of the best set design I've seen in years. 3 years ago

    Isle of Dogs, Wes Anderson's second stop-motion animated feature, is a delight. Visually spectacular, filled with wonderful details suited to Anderson's unique style.

    I feel like this must be addressed as well. Many have accused it of cultural appropriation. Ignore it. Do not give it any thought, people just insist on finding something to complain about.

    I had a great time with Isle of Dogs, even though sometimes the story stalls. Definitely in Anderson's top 5.

    Wes Anderson's stop-motion homage to influential Japanese film-makers (so influential, you'll sometimes think he's referencing spaghetti westerns), Isle of Dogs (cute pun), is indeed a feast for the eyes. I'm not surprised that such a meticulous director who create something so rich in detail, a diorama come alive, with a great voice cast, juggling tragedy and comedy with a deft touch. I WAS surprised, however, that the film was so political, evoking the horrors of the past, present and hopefully not future in its use of propaganda, concentration camps, and genocide. I like the canine cast a lot - it delivers laughs, pathos and variety - while the humans have their own fun/tragic dramas going on. Isle of Dogs is clever and fun to look at, possibly touching, but most of all, it's charming as all get-out. Give your pet a cuddle when you come out of this one. 2 years 11 months ago
