The Press Reviews

  • Say "Isle of Dogs" fast and it comes out sounding an awful lot like "I Love Dogs" - which makes sense, since that's pretty much the chief takeaway from Wes Anderson's delightful new animated feature. Full Review

  • Anderson's trademark tongue-in-cheek humour and deadpan quips are there to ease the way, which seem more fluidly delivered by puppets than in Anderson's live-action fare. Full Review

  • This hugely enjoyable package shows an indefatigably fertile imagination letting rip in inimitable style - and packing an eco-themed, antibigotry message as well. Full Review

  • Don't let the fluffy faces fool you. Wes Anderson's latest animation delivers talking dogs and snicker-inducing scenarios. But it's also bleak and frequently unsettling, a dazzling family movie with the darkest of hearts. Full Review

  • The unique charm of Isle of Dogs is its bottomless vault of curios, its sly humour, playful graphic inserts and dexterous narrative detours. Full Review

  • This is by some measure Anderson's weirdest concoction ever, in all sorts of good ways. And it probably counts as his most daring, too. Full Review

  • Anderson is clearly a dog lover himself and his film is bound to appeal to anyone who shares his passion. All in all, the film is quite a treat. Full Review
