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.

A delight, albeit one that is red in tooth and claw.

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.

Isle of Dogs is in need of a stronger storyteller. And, yes, there are times when the cleverness starts to feel smug. I would have liked Isle of Dogs more if there had been less of it.

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.

Worth seeing and often very droll, as well as exactingly, rigorously, fastidiously composed, stop-motion frame by frame.

Wes Anderson's latest stop-motion movie is another lovely, artful trifle.

"Isle of Dogs" is a visual bento box assembled by a gifted dilettante, an outsider who loves the art of a place but seems much less interested in its meaning to the people and culture that created it.

There's so much going on in "Isle of Dogs" that it probably has to be seen at least twice to be properly appreciated. How many films can you say that about?
