ISLE OF DOGS (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Isle of Dogs
—highly imaginative, animated film that quickly establishes itself as a classic—tells its story well and firmly establishes the Director Wes Anderson’s (Budapest Hotel) unique methodology in film making. Very well done at every level. A WOW/Bravo! film worth a watch for the whole family. The film employs a wonderfully creative technique of speaking Japanese with a commentator or newscaster speaking English as an interpreter. Gives the viewer a break from reading subtitles. Great entertainment piece.
