!!!! Poetic cinema !!!!
I want to love Isle of Dogs so bad, I really do, but it’s impossible not to compare it to Fantastic Mr. Fox. And honestly? Isle of Dogs simply does not hit the same emotional notes that Fantastic Mr. Fox does.
The story is exciting, the soundtrack is spectacular and the stop motion animation is perfect, but the characters are severely underdeveloped. All of this makes Isle of Dogs an entertaining watch, but I have no emotional connection with it…
