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.
Even with a narrative that feels more like a diagram, even with some questionable decisions regarding cultural translation, Isle of Dogs bursts with its maker's drollery and contagious passion for the medium of film.
Wes Anderson "Isle of Dogs" is such a feast of illustrated imagination and subtle wit in its depiction of an exiled canine kingdom that the idea of a life lived under the heavy paw of our pooch overlords doesn't seem like such a bad one.
A dystopian fable pitting man's best friends against its worst fiends in a futuristic Japan, the writer-director proves again that in his hands, a bedtime story is more likely to be an over-stimulant than a narcotic.
Anderson's gorgeous stop-motion animated film is much more than just a transdermal patch for America's cuteness addiction. Instead, he's crafted a wicked smart satire of moronic local politicians that fits in snuggly with his eclectic oeuvre.
A splendid jewel box of a movie about rather grisly matters, the filmmaker's latest represents another example of the clash between his playfully self-aware aesthetic and his growing obsession with our inhumanity.
