Isle of Dogs

Emmy says:
The artwork and animation were spot on, evoking the traditional styles of Japan and bringing life to a world of garbage. Being stuck in the doggo camp having the majority of human characters talking in non-subtitled Japanese was a great experience and made great use of physical features to portray emotion and intent. Greatly enjoyed the story and call this a win for all lovers of dogkind. 9/10.

This is a strange and quirky film (it’s by Wes Anderson, so that’s expected). Having loved The Grand Budapest Hotel, and been excited by the trailer for Isle of Dogs, I think I might have anticipated it too much and come a way a little disappointed … it just wasn’t as “OMG! Wow!” as I expected. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a delightful film with impressive visuals, voice talent, and overall aesthetic. I’m curious how this will play in Japan, where the artifice of the language barrier won’t be obvious. The bilingual people sitting next to us clearly enjoyed it, so it will likely be fine. I loved it, but love The Grand Budapest Hotel more. 9/10.
