WHAT'S IT ABOUT

In the near future the dogs of Japan are diseased and dangerous. Every dog is sequestered on a trash filled island off the coast. Six months later a young boy steals a plane in a desperate attempt to rescue his beloved pet.

 

What did we think

    Wes Anderson’s film-making is exceptional but I usually find his stories chaotic and unsatisfying. In Isle of Dogs his art is recontextualised by the sublime stop-motion puppeteering and the Japanese locations. It makes it much easier to settle in and appreciate a performance, rather than a story. The narrative is thin on the ground but that’s not what you’re watching for. The theme of lost dogs is so beautifully crafted that I can only urge you to get out and see this film. “They’re good dogs Brent” 4.5/5
