Cinema Cindy Reviews ‘Isle Of Dogs’

Los Alamos
 
“Isle of Dogs” is a real treat! This animated (stop-motion and puppetry), feature length film delights the senses and kept a smile on this reviewer’s face all the way home. It’s the latest cinematic creation from director Wes Anderson, known for The Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Moonrise Kingdom. Its wonderful music soundtrack was composed by the Oscar-winning Alexandre Desplat.
 
Don’t be fooled. Most of the laughs in Isle of Dogs are inspired by subtle, verbal and visual details.
