Mini Review - Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs (out Apr 12) is the latest from director Wes Anderson and is a stop-motion animated feature about a 12-year-old boy living in a futuristic Japanese city who goes looking for his lost dog on an island filled with garbage. Targeted at both kids and adults, there’s a lot of fun to be had with the story and the mix of both light and dark comedy. Anderson is known for his use of symmetry and that’s illustrated again here with some beautifully framed scenes. Grade: A-.
