One of the best things a movie can do is surprise us, show us something we’ve never seen before. Wes Anderson‘s extraordinary stop-motion animation in the service of his eccentric imagination does just this. Isle of Dogs has ominous political overtones—the genocidal, cat-chauvinist mayor of Megasaki uses an outbreak of canine flu to round up dogs and exile them to the hellish Trash Island where they must fend for themselves or starve—but they are so muted that they shouldn’t turn off dog lovers who will adore the creatures Anderson has so meticulously created. And then there’s the voices that bring them to life, supplied by Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Francis McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, and Yoko Ono.—Peter Biskind

“Mr. Anderson pulls you hard into Isle of Dogs…I could watch hours of its noble dogs hanging out, sniffing the air.”—Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“Isle of Dogs boils over, not just with kinesthetic fur, but with visual details, cinematic references, and, in a relatively new development for this filmmaker, topical political ideas.”—Dana Stevens, Slate

“It’s true that Isle of Dogs is a film about scapegoating, political hysteria, and deportation. But it is also–and at its best–a film about dogs. May they never go unpetted.”—Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
