The director and his hip writing partners (Jason Schwartzman, Roman Coppola, Kunichi Nomura) infuse their imaginary world with winning deadpan humor.

Muttrise Kingdom? The Life Canine with Bryan Cranston? Although ISLE OF DOGS doesn't quite scale [Anderson's] recent heights, this engaging stop motion animation is full of humour and warmth that is surely difficult to hate.

It's a beautifully crafted story about how much one boy will do for his dog and what one man will do for his ancestor's honour.

This is a kids movie that knows the kids can handle the darkness better than the grown ups.

Wes Anderson continues raising his personal bar on auteur level filmmaking and his animated dog movie is a classic.

"'Isle' is dark, violent, and too thematically complex for pre-teens. But it's also bloody brilliant, and teenage and adult cinephiles will be spellbound."

The ensemble cast wonderfully delivers [Wes] Anderson's deadpan dialogue while leaving the beautiful animation and eye-catching visuals to guide the audience's imagination.

Isle Of Dogs is larger-than-life imagination without a leash.

Imaginative, engaging, funny, and heart-warming

The fact that a story aimed at the adult audience and with a disused animation technique is emerging as one of the essential productions of the year (inside and outside the animation cinema) is an infinitely valuable achievement. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aesthetic treatment aside, absolutely all the elements that shape this fabulous analog spectacle entitled Isle of Dogs dazzle with an unusual glow. [Full Review in Spanish]

Making widely beloved pets the target of a genocidal dictator leaves little room for subtlety in Anderson's latest beautifully-rendered foray into stop-motion animation.
July 10, 2019
One can interpret the movie to be about deportation, political scapegoating, and what have you. But in the end, it's a story about dogs loving their masters and Wes Anderson delivers a beautiful spectacle.

Set 20 years hence in fictional Megasaki City, Isle of Dogs is director Wes Anderson's off-centre homage to both Japanese cinema and the pure souls of man's best friend.
June 17, 2019
It's a beautiful movie, even as death and decay are central to its plot - not always themes you find in Anderson's balanced, pastel cinematic wonderlands.
