Critic Reviews for Isle of Dogs
This is outwardly one of Anderson's bleakest films. It's also one of his dullest and least emotional.
Anderson's projects have always had a meticulous quality to them, but "Isle of Dogs" is exacting to the point of alienation. Someone needs a leash.
Another utterly distinctive, formally brilliant exercise in savant innocence from Anderson, somewhere between arch naivety and inspired sophistication.
It remains more a dazzling conceit or experiment rather than a realized whole. We stay on the outside, admiring its originality and all the talent that went into it, without ever really finding our way in.
Audience Reviews for Isle of Dogs
Combine the quirky, vivacious humor of Wes Anderson with the gullible and fluid stop-motion animation and you've got a surprisingly heartfelt, ambitious and charming film and not to mention the canine frenzy that Isle of Dogs has to offer. 4.25/5
After The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Wes Anderson returns to animation with this wild tale of a japanese town banning all dogs to an island and a boy's desperate search for his canine friend. The animated dolls and scenes look absolutely amazing, combined with Anderson's well known screen composition that makes for a treat for the eyes. The voice acting is top notch, as well, combining Anderson's usual suspects with a few newcomers. Sure, the story and attitude feels smug at times, but it's all in good, quirky fun. ONly could have done without the anti-cat-propaganda.
Am I the only one who had a problem with a movie about Japanese dogs, all speaking English with American accents. And not a Shiba inu among them?
