Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
MUST-SEE: Isle of Dogs
Everything director Wes Anderson touches has a distinct, sometimes overly quirky tone. It can be a turn-off for some people. Others love his movies, though, and eagerly anticipate every one. Isle of Dogs had built in appeal in part because it was so focused on man’s best friend.
The stop-motion movie follows a group of dogs as they help a young boy find his pet. The animation is beautifully rendered, and the story is moving and thought-provoking in equal measure. It’s not hard to make dog-lovers cry, but if you are one, Isle of Dogs is sure to do just that.
