The general gist is that Movies In Focus are rarely does animation – but Wes Anderson‘s 2018 film Isle of Dogs is a mini-masterpiece
Anderson’s stop-motion feature is a gem of a movie. It might be animated, but this exceptionally put together comedy isn’t just for kids. In fact, it’s doubtful they’d even enjoy this wonderfully dry Japanese dog movie. Anderson has been a consistently great filmmaker for the last 20 years or so and this again features his own brand of visual panache and quirky whimsy.
Like with Anderson’s live action pics, this has a cast to die for. This time around it’s Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban and others voicing the film’s characters.
Isle Of Dogs grossed $32 million at the US box office and $64 million globally.
