Listen, I don’t want to harsh anyone’s buzz, and I love Wes Anderson and it’s great seeing people be excited by his work, but I’m having a hard time getting on the Isle of Dogs train. Believe you me, I want to be on it. I love dogs. I love stop motion animation. I love Fantastic Mr. Fox! And yet halfway through ISLE OF DOGS I got that sinking feeling I get when a movie isn’t working in a way that I need the movie to work, and that sinking feeling was bolstered by a growing sense that ISLE OF DOGS, beyond its other problems, is racially… how do I put this?… weird.
