Isle of Dogs (2018)
Wes Anderson films are always a delight, especially his stop-motion flicks. So, Isle of Dogs, a Wes Anderson animated feature about dogs is a perfect, kitschy (pup) treat. Set in Japan, where dog flu plagues four-legged friends throughout the country, one mayor orders all dogs be banished to the particularly grim Trash Island. Of course, the plan doesn’t sit well with children who love their pets unconditionally, so the film follows the adventures of one boy as he teams up with a group of canines in search of his beloved Spot. With the likes of Bryan Cranston, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Murray, and others offering their voices as banished pups, and Anderson’s highly detailed stop-motion, it’s hard not to be a dog lover after watching this film.
