Wes Anderson directs the voices of Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig and Koyu Rankin in this animated adventure about an island of dispossessed dogs who help a young Japanese boy find his faithful bodyguard, Spots.
Beautiful, witty, twee. Predictable, yet no less admirable work from Anderson then. This is an absolute intricate lark, full of spot on cultural appropriation of Japanese cinema. Hardly the most marginalised of cinematic cultures, so let’s not worry too much about the fantastical, and obviously obsessively affectionate, homage. There’s a line that states the leads should help “Because he’s a 12-year-old boy. Dogs love those.” You should love this as its a Wes Anderson flick. Moviegoers love those.
