100 Word Review – Isle of Dogs

A group of dogs

With their unquestionable loyalty and seemingly bottomless ability to love, I’ve long said that “humans don’t deserve dogs”.  Isle of Dogs uses Wes Anderson’s unique lens to show us a heart-warming and affectionate portrayal of man’s best friend.

It’s offbeat and unique and adorable and funny, but I can’t shake the feeling that it’s self-indulgent. The best way to describe it is perhaps to liken Isle of Dogs to a Dachshund – lovely, but long and maybe drags in the middle.

Fantastically detailed animation with a cast of distinctive voices makes the story both whimsical and weird. Odd but worth it.
