Isle of Dogs. 2018. USA. Directed by Wes Anderson. 101 min.
Wes Anderson's second animated feature (following 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox), is a Japan-set journey with a pack of dogs infected with “snout fever.” After the mayor of Megasaki City banishes all dogs to Trash Island, a young boy named Atari steals a plane and flies to the island in search of his dog. Anderson is never more visually exacting than in his stop-motion animated worlds, and he delights here in the details: canine fur blowing in the breeze, cherry blossom leaves fluttering to the ground, and an immaculate sushi-making sequence.
