Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[A] visual and technical marvel -- a movie whose every image is a miniature triumph of imagination and execution." -- Grade: A-
A.A. Dowd (21 Mar 2018, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"It’s smart and different and sometimes deliberately odd and really funny -- rarely in a laugh-out-loud way, more in a smile-and-nod-I-get-the-joke kind of way."
Richard Roeper (27 Mar 2018, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "[J]oyous and visually splendid....ISLE OF DOGS is Anderson at his loosest and goosiest; you could say he’s been let off his leash."
Nick De Semlyen (23 Feb 2018, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[A] thoroughly captivating tale of a 12-year-old Japanese boy's quest to rescue his beloved pet..."
David Rooney (15 Feb 2018, )
Los Angeles Times
"On a pure frame-by-frame basis, ISLE OF DOGS is a triumph of invention and micro-detail, a bravura showcase for cinematographer Tristan Oliver's impeccable widescreen compositions..."
Justin Chang (21 Mar 2018, )
New York Times
"[V]isually seductive, filled with perfectly aligned cubistic trash, gleaming pools of toxic liquid and walls of colored glass bottles that glow like stained-glass windows on a sun-drenched morning."
(22 Mar 2018, )
Rolling Stone
"[T]he details are what gives Isle of Dogs its vibrancy and allure. And despite the film's dark subtext, Anderson keeps the action fizzy all the way through."
Peter Travers (20 Mar 2018, )
The Guardian
4 stars out of 5 -- "Visually and thematically, ISLE OF DOGS is steeped in contemporary Japanese pop culture and futuristic iconography, but it also draws on traditional influences – not least in its witty allusions to Hokusai and other classic art.
Jonathan Romney (15 Feb 2018, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "DOGS ranks among Anderson’s most inventive works to date."
Total Film Staff (2 Apr 2018, )
Variety
"ISLE OF DOGS is really a film about its own enthusiasms: for four-legged fleabags of all shapes and sizes, of course, but also for the culture and cinema of Japan, which is woven with typical fastidiousness into Anderson’s magpie aesthetic."
Guy Lodge (15 Feb 2018, )
